Scottish Borders Council say moves to cover zig-zag lines with a traffic regulation order will come into place in the next few months.

"The zig-zags have been introduced on a school by school basis, so over the years, some have got a traffic regulation behind them, but the vast majority don't.
"We are waiting for a consolidation order that will bring them all in line, they will all be covered by a traffic regulation order in the future.
"The sooner that happens the better. The order has been made and will come into place on Monday, but it will take up to three months before signs are put up, making it enforceable."
Drivers are being urged not to park on zig-zag lines outside schools, after it emerged that some in the Scottish Borders are not covered by legislation.
Ettrick, Roxburgh and Berwickshire MSP John Lamont said:
– John Lamont MSP
"Even though we don't have the legal framework in place to allow the police to enforce traffic regulations outside some schools, I hope that parents and other road users will acknowledge the fact that these zig-zag lines are here for a purpose, they are there to protect children, make sure our schools are safe. I would urge drivers not to park or drive inappropriately near schools."
