Abstract

Significant aspects of a simple intervention using traffic cones to reduce traffic hazards around schools at peak time is discussed. Traffic cones at strategic sites were placed to reduce the availability of illegal parking space in the roads around two schools at the end of the school days. It found that the number of illegal parking incidents decreases when the control was compared to the intervention phase at both site. The traffic cones resulted in significant falls in the number of illegal parking at both sites.
