Parents urged to use proper parking near schools
Parents dropping their children at Potentiel Nursery in Al Manara street have been urged to park in designated areas.
Major General Mohammad Saif Al Zafein, Assistant to the Dubai Police Chief for Operations Affairs, urged parents to not park on the road to drop of their children, and to use the designated parking.
He said that people resort to parking their car on the road to avoid the walk to the nursery.
Maj Gen Al Zafein’s appeal came during a field visit to the area when he noticed parents leaving their cars in the middle of the road, which is a two-way street.
This causes a build-up of traffic in the area and forces people to drive in the wrong direction to pass the parked vehciles.
He also suggested that the nursery provide more parking spaces behind the school to avoid inconveniencing passing motorists
