Many parents experience that is decidedly congestion at the roads close to the country's schools, when children must be handed in on the morning.

Although it may be tempting to run the kids to school in the car to ensure that they do not need to go on the bike or walking on busy roads, is it a bad idea when it comes to creating more security in the skolevejene, says the Council for Safe Traffic.
- If more and more drive their children to school, so there will be even more gridlock on the skolevejene, and then we have for the seriousness of the vicious circle, where more and more lets the bike stand and not let their children go to school. It is important that children walking and cycling, as they both touched themselves, and learn to commit themselves in traffic, " says Petrea Busck, special consultant of the Council for Safe Traffic.
At several schools around the country have put the focus on just traffic chaos on the skolevejene and have found solutions that have lessened the problem, f.ex. by making special zones, where parents can put their children without creating chaos. But individual parents can also help to solve the problem by looking at their own behavior.
several schools are experiencing, some parents will drive the kids up to skoledøren. But if you instead choose to park a few hundred metres from the school and walk the last bit together, so get the child touched, and it is a perfect opportunity for you at the same time just might get talked about traffic and how you can take care of themselves. At the same time, is also to ensure that does not occur yet more traffic chaos right in front of the school, says Petrea Busck.
