Drivers are still parking on double yellow lines at Hunter Drive despite the new measures.
Drivers are still parking on double yellow lines at Hunter Drive despite the new measures.

This week saw East Renfrewshire Council introduced new parking measures at five primary schools in Newton Mearns – but not everyone has taken heed of the new rules.

Crookfur, St Cadoc’s, Calderwood Lodge, St Clare’s and Mearns Primary all have new rules in place and there are also new measures at Eastwood High and Mearns Castle High.

Community Safety Officers are monitoring around the schools to ensure these new road traffic orders are being obeyed.

However, drivers are still parking on double yellow lines as our picture above shows.

We want to hear from The Extra readers. What are your thoughts on the new measures? Has this made any difference to the school run?
