Our school has limited parking and the parents often park at the red curb and a couple parents park in the two handicap spots. Though I've been aware of this for a couple years, I don't usually see it because dh usually does the morning dropoff. It does bother me, but I don't know if I should say/do anything about it. On one hand, normally I feel it isn't really my business where people choose to park. On the other hand, both my kids are at the school and if there was a medical emergency or fire, the emergency vehicles would not be able to get through. The red zone is on a curve, so a police car could get through even with people parked there, but I don't think a firetruck or ambulance would be able to manuveur through.
Ideally the principal would remind people, but I think he is a little intimidated by the parents at the school. The head of the Parent Organization is one of the ones that parks in the handicap spot all the time!
Anyway, I don't know if anyone would choose a better parking spot just because I mentioned it. So do I just hope that there is never an emergency the first or last half hour of school?
