Written Reply to Parliamentary Question on Addressing Illegal Parking Around Schools During School Commencement and Dismissal Times

08 May 2024In Parliament

Assoc Prof Jamus Jerome Lim asked the Minister for Transport whether there are measures to address illegal parking around schools during school commencement and ending times.

Reply by Minister for Transport Chee Hong Tat:

1.     LTA partners our schools on traffic management plans. These include deploying school traffic marshals, designating locations to drop-off students safely during school commencement hours, issuing joint advisories to educate parents not to wait along public roads ahead of dismissal time, and providing parking alternatives for vehicles. 

2.      Parking wardens will also be deployed at schools during dismissal time to deter driving behaviour that obstructs traffic, or pose safety risks to road users.
