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:
"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."
