More than 50 motorists have been dealt with by police in and around Aylsham for parking illegally outside schools.
Officers from the town's safer neighbourhood team gave verbal warnings to motorists parking on double yellow lines, close to junctions, on junctions, on yellow hatchings and on time restricted single yellow lines over the past five weeks.
In total 55 drivers were warned for illegal and inconsiderate parking, several warnings were given to motorists for seat belt offences along with one �30 fine.
PCSO Tracey Frost said: 'We have received positive feedback from parents, carers, residents and staff about the five week initiative we carried out.
'The main intention was to educate drivers of the dangers of parking illegally and dangerously on the roads particularly outside the schools.
'We warned many motorists and suggested alternative parking areas to improve the safety of pupils attending school and prevent congestion on the roads.'
