The Scottish Border Council say it could take up to three months to put up signs that will stop people parking on zig-zag lines at schools.
The council were subject to fierce criticism after it was discovered that the road markings were not covered by a traffic order, meaning police could not take action.
In some cases lines had been painted years ago without them being covered by a Traffic Regulation Order.
The council have now announced that the paperwork for the Traffic Regulation Order's needed to cover these lines was completed on Monday 17 February, but can't be enforced until the signs can be put up. Something which could take up to 12 weeks.
