SCHOOL TRAFFIC

School traffic

We have received a number of complaints regarding traffic and parking outside our schools, we therefore are sending out this timely reminder;

  • Park with consideration to residents – do not block or overlap driveways.
  • Do not park on the corners of junctions as you reduce views and make it awkward for vehicles to safety turn into or out of a street.
  • Do not park across or impede pedestrian crossings or school zig-zag markings.
  • Do not drive along pavements when a road is blocked – be patient and wait for traffic to clear.
  • On congested routes plan ahead and do not proceed unless there is a clear space to use to give way to oncoming traffic or to allow traffic to give way to you.
  • Allow larger vehicles, such as buses, enough space to turn into or out of roads.
  • If possible join with other parents and share journeys to reduce the number of vehicles used and/or avoid congested routes.
  • Please be patient where a car has to cross a pavement to exit a carpark. The driver's view may be restricted and this will be further reduced by pedestrians congregating whilst waiting to pass.
  • Be aware that children do not easily judge the speed of traffic and may step out into the road. 20 or 30mph may be the limit but generally much slower speeds are required.
  • Pedestrians, especially with young children, should use the side of the road with the widest pathway and wherever possible protected from flowing traffic by barriers or parked cars. "Why should we have to cross and use the other side of the road?" – If it's the safest option in any situation then it's worth doing! A large number of children using a narrow path will always be at risk no matter how busy the road.

The above list is not exhaustive and there will be occasions where people make errors of judgement, especially under pressure. We are all human so please be patient. Police officers will monitor where they can, however there are a large number of schools across the South Northants area all experiencing the same issues.

Neighbourhood Watch Scheme

Hi Everyone

I am pleased to advise that Hackleton now has it's own Neighbourhood Watch scheme (No. S126).

I can also advise that the police now have an online automated system that sends reports of crime in South Northants to all residents that are registered on their local Neighbourhood Watch scheme.

To gain access to the registration process just go onto the www.northantsnhw.co.uk website where you will asked for your postcode. Enter this and you will see a map showing schemes for Piddington and Hackleton.
Piddington residents should click on scheme S44 and Hackleton is scheme S126. More »

Once onto the map you will see the area covered by the scheme. Scroll down and click on the "Apply to join" box. This will send a message to the Neighbourhood Watch coordinator who will register you as a scheme member. Your membership will be confirmed by email from the coordinator.

Once your registration has been completed you will receive Alerts from the police, not only for crime reports but also security advice and warnings of scams etc.

I will continue with the distribution of my messages until I am happy the new system is working correctly.

Please pass on the information to all residents who would find this of interest and would like to register. You can always contact me if you have any problems.

Best regards

Phil Renshaw
