Child safety at school gates 'of the upmost importance'

More needs to be done to increase the safety of school children travelling to and from school, car insurers have said.

The warning comes after a poll by Allianz Your Cover showed 75% of parents had seen aggressive behaviour during the school run.

We support calls for increased safety around schools. Getting children to the school gates safely is of the upmost importance and often the competition for parking spaces, busy parents and the need to be on time can distract from this.
