A photo has emerged online of a car supposedly driving along a pavement outside of a school because there is “not enough room on the road”.

The photo was taken by a concerned parent of Leesons Primary School in Orpington yesterday (May 8) afternoon.

She told News Shopper: “It is happening every morning. Cars can’t drive along the road as it is not wide enough for two vehicles.

“I couldn’t believe it yesterday, the BMW drove on the pavement to get through. I have seen buses and motorbikes doing the same thing.”

The mum, who did not want to be named, added: “Everyday there is an incident.

“One of the kids is going to get killed. It is so dangerous. We need double yellow lines to stop people parking on the curb.”

The school is located on Leesons Hill in Orpington.

A spokeswoman for the school told News Shopper that they are also concerned about road safety.

She added: "It is a narrow road and residents parking on it doesn't help.

"So often cars have to wait for oncoming traffic, but unfortunately there have been some impatient drivers on their way to work who don't wait and will drive on the pavement.

"We all want the same thing, which is the safety of children and the parents who bring them to school."

One grandmother who goes by the school four days a week blamed parents for the problem. 

She told News Shopper: "It is not the drivers' fault - it is the parents who can't be bothered to walk far so they park outside the school."
