Parents in parts of London who use a car to do the school run may be fined in a bid to improve air pollution and safety, the Standard has reported.
A fine of up to £130 in parts of London is set to be issued to parents as cars will be banned from streets near schools at morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up times.
Pupils will be expected to walk or cycle to get to school as part of the School Streets initiative by Hackney Council.
The motion is set to be trialled in two schools and could be expanded to the rest of the capital.
Restrictions would apply between 8.30am-9.15am and 3.15pm-4pm.
Vehicles parked in the street before they come into force will be able to drive out of it without a fine. Penalty notices will be delivered to offenders by post.
