Police in Kettering are reminding people to think before they park as part of their ongoing work to tackle inconsiderate and illegal parking, particularly around schools.
Parking issues are often raised as a concern by local people and officers have been carrying out patrols in these areas, issuing parking tickets if necessary or giving advice to motorists who park their vehicle in an inconsiderate or anti-social way.
PCSO Mel Thomas said: Last week, we issued tickets to eight drivers who had parked illegally near Millbrook school in Churchill Way.
We will be continuing our patrols around other schools and in particular will be on the lookout for drivers who park on the white zig-zags markings or cause an obstruction.
I would urge people to think about their how and where they park, make sure they consider other road users and leave their vehicles in a safe and appropriate place.
