It's official. When asked what the most annoying thing about the school run is, parents tell us it is cars, cars and more cars.

Is traffic around your school gates making them congested, polluted and unsafe? Your local council has the power to do something about this. 

Living Streets has identified a range of tools at councils' disposal.

School road closures, Controlled parking zones, and 20mph speed limits are all measures that can transform streets outside schools.

This International Walk to School Month, why not take the first step and contact your local council to see how they can help?

Our online letter writing tool allows your to contact your local councillors and tailor the letter to your local school’s needs.

Making local streets safer for children is a huge step towards making all our streets fitter for walking.

Ask your local councillors to take action

1. Give us some details so we can address your letter and work out who your councillors are

2. Tell us a school or a street where you think this is a problem
