Safety fears have been raised after it emerged that zig-zag safety lines painted outside some schools in the Borders are not currently covered by legislation.
Despite being painted outside school entrances, the safety markings are not covered by a traffic regulation order that prevents people from parking on them.
The issue came to light when a parent complained to police about motorists parking on zig-zags to drop children off at school, to be told they were unable to take action because the legislation is not yet in place.
Scottish Borders Council say they are in the final stages of a traffic regulation order, which they hope will be enforceable in a few months time.
