Plans have been revealed by the City Council to cut out some school crossings.
As part of the plan to drastically cut council costs it was revealed that some school crossing services are likely to be withdrawn.
The council have claimed that they are only considering those schools where the roads are considered safe.
I suppose that the response to that is why were there crossing services in place at these locations anyway if they are not regarded as necessary?
Parents understandably are concerned.
Children will still rush out of a school gate and if they see a friend across the road they will rush out without looking.
Is this the best way to save money from hard pressed budgets?
