Traffic issues at the front of Darling Heights State School

​It has come to the attention of Drayton and Toowoomba Police Stations that numerous avoidable traffic crashes are occurring around the Darling Heights SS area.  A number of crashes have occurred in and around the school zone during drop off and pick up times.  Apart from the crashes, a significant concern in the area is various traffic offences that are being committed causing extensive traffic congestions and raising concern for the pedestrians, which include young children.

Some of the main offences about which police have received  complaints are:  crossing double lines, double parking, failure to use appropriate pedestrian crossings, and the use of timed car parks being exceeded. 

These offences attract high fines which can be easily avoided with your help.  As a school community, drivers and pedestrians alike can work together to maximise the safety of their children and co-students.  These offences attract high fines which can be easily avoided with your help.  As a school community, drivers and pedestrians alike can work together to maximise the safety of the students, teachers and parents and also minimise traffic congestion.  Due to the ongoing complaints received by the public, Police will be focusing on the area to ensure safe and effective practices are adhered to.
