Drivers who park illegally outside schools in the Reepham area are to be tackled by police in the town.
Officers will be working in conjunction with local schools during four weeks to at first warn them and then potentially issue them with on the spot fines of �30.
Checks will be carried out outside Foulsham Primary, Cawston Primary, Reepham Primary and Great Witchingham Primary schools from Monday to March 19.
Parents and carers will receive letters and leaflets advising them of the work the team will be carrying out after half term and reminding them of the Highway Code.
In addition officers will be visiting the classrooms and attending assemblies to educate pupils of road safety.
The community is being asked to report any illegal or inconsiderate parking outside schools, their local knowledge can help police direct policing resources to deal with local issues.
