One council in the West Midlands is tackling the growing problem of cars parked illegally outside schools during pick up and drop off times.
CCTV installed in a car is being used to capture images of vehicles parked in restricted areas in Wolverhampton. Any drivers caught will face a fine of up to £70.
It is a dangerous and growing problem.
CCTV footage captured by the car shows some parents and carers parking their cars in no zone areas during school pick up and drop off times.
The road outside Woodfield Infant School in the city is quite narrow and parking spaces are limted. Some parents say they do struggle to find a place to park.
The CCTV enforcement car has an automatic number plate recognition system installed which will identify any offenders
It's the first time the council are using this idea to tackle the problem
The car will now permanently patrol schools across the city at the beginning and the end of the school day. It's hoped it will make people think twice before stopping.
