The camera car will be introduced to monitor parking in and around local schools, as well as being used in others areas affected by dangerous parking and bus lanes.

This car will also act as a strong deterrent to motorists who may park irresponsibly or illegally, putting the safety of others at risk.

Councillor Dean Fitzpatrick, Cabinet Member for Education at Stockport Council, said: “The safety of our children is our top priority. We know that the majority of parents and carers do the right thing when it comes to driving responsibly around schools – however some people are still putting children’s lives at risk by parking dangerously. I’m absolutely committed to making our schools as safe as they can be for Stockport children.”

Councillor Sheila Bailey, Cabinet Member for Communities and Housing at Stockport Council, said: “There will be nothing to worry about for those who stick to the rules - these measures will help us to tackle problem parkers outside schools and elsewhere across the borough.”
