Police are warning parents about illegal parking when dropping off and picking up their children from school in Howden Clough.
Residents in Windmill Road have complained to offices after parents were seen parking their vehicles on the pavement and on zig-zags near Batley Girls’ High School.
A police spokesman said parking illegally made life difficult for residents and could be very unsafe for the children who go to the school.
Officers from Batley Neighbourhood Policing Team have been patrolling the area surrounding the school.
Police said action would be taken against motorists for committing offences of obstruction and dangerous parking.
Enforcement action by the Highways Agency is also being considered.
