Teachers at a Dundee school face being fined if they arrive at work in their cars at certain times under much-criticised plans to cut congestion.
The School Streets initiative would mean traffic being banned from all roads surrounding Fintry Primary School at peak times.
Under the plans, cars would not be able to access the area between 8.30-9.05am and 3-3.30pm.
Drivers who fail to comply would face fines and penalty points.
Permits will only be granted to residents on those streets and documents outlining the plans make clear that “there would be no exemption for school staff”.
The move is seen by locals as an attempt by Dundee City Council to encourage kids to walk to school.
However, Ron Neave of Fintry Community Council – a frequent critic of the School Streets plan – said that was unlikely to happen.
He said: “Most of the time parents are dropping their kids off on the way to work. They’re not going to stop doing that.”
The council has warned that “anyone flouting the ban would be stopped by the police and likely subject to a fine and points on their driving licence”.
However, police have previously said they do not have the resources to rigorously enforce the scheme.
Mike Welsh, communities officer with the council, said it was a response to parents “causing difficulties at peak times”.
He added: “If we can work with parents and they’re supportive then I guess it will be more successful. I cannot comment on the issue of police supporting such a scheme.”
Fintry Primary has been the scene of “aggressive” stand-offs between parents caught up in its narrow surrounding streets for some time.
About £25,000 was set aside to develop a solution to the issue following the Dundee Decides contest earlier this year.
Locals, including Mr Neave, continue to advocate for alternatives, such as a one-way system.
