A POLICE community support officer is on a one-woman crusade to stop people parking dangerously in the Worle area.Maria Locke, of the Worle beat team, has been trying to stop motorists parking on zig-zag lines outside schools and she says things are about to get tougher for those ignoring the law.She said: "When people park on zig-zag lines it is dangerous for youngsters trying to cross the road."The lines are at the entrances and exits of schools and we need to keep these areas clear so kids aren't trying to cross behind and in front of vehicles."In future, if the message doesn't get through to people they will get a £60 fine and three points on their licence."Maria has been trying to visit one primary school each day. Last week she visited Mendip Green First School, Hillside First School and St Martin's Junior School as well as Worlebury St Paul's First School and Milton infant and junior schools. A total of 17 tickets were issued in one day.
