BAD parking in Llanfair Caereinion is putting children’s lives in danger.

That’s the message from an anonymous social media campaigner called ‘Parking Llanfair Caereinion’ who has for months highlighted poor parking near the zebra crossing on the A458 Pool Road.

Parents on the school run who “insist on parking dangerously, obscuring the view of traffic and children crossing supervised,” says the campaigner.

A post said: “Another day and another busy crossing obscured by the selfish. We desperately need this addressing NOW,”

“This needs urgent attention from all parties it’s putting children at risk.”

Another added: “Please Stop this it’s putting our children in danger. Enough now.”

A Welsh Government spokesperson: “Creating a safe environment for children to travel to and from school is of the utmost importance and we have implemented measures such as the installation of variable 20mph speed limits outside schools near the trunk road network.

“We would be happy to discuss any issue on the A458 Pool Road which would result in more considerate parking.”
