Website promotes safer parking

IF YOU want to know about road rules and school pick-up zones, just ask the kids at Frenchville State School.

A bright bunch of students in conjunction with Main Roads and Queensland Transport have released a two-minute video clip of their school and it's parking issues in a fun and creative way.

The traffic safety campaign was started to show parents the correct way to collectand drop-off children at the school without causing congestion, after years of parking issues at the school, principal Leisa Neaton said yesterday.

"The kids are able to influence their parents driving behaviour this way through multi-media which gets your attention rather than putting it in the newsletter every week, and the kids just loved working on it and learning new skills," she said.

Cooper Murray is just one of 940 students at the growing primary school and said he hoped it would get parent's attention.

"I hope they see the video and it makes them follow the rules properly," Cooper said.

Leisa said each parent would soon receive a DVD copy of the clip to raise awareness in the school and wider community on the issue.
