The Brisbane schools named on parking inspectors' hit list this term

Parking officers will blitz 60 schools when the first term begins later this month, cracking down on parents during hectic school drop-offs and pick-ups.

Brisbane Times has obtained the list of schools that Brisbane City Council will target when school returns on January 28.

They include Indooroopilly State School, Somerville House and The Gap State School.

Deputy mayor Krista Adams said the schools were self-nominated or "identified by council as needing extra patrols to boost safety".

New additions to the list include Lourdes Hill College, Ascot State School and Yeronga State School.

Schools with inspectors during term four last year that have been dropped off the list include All Hallows’ School in the CBD, Brisbane Central State School and Wondall Heights State School.

"I understand school pick up and drop off can be busy, but dropping off children where it is unsafe is just not acceptable," Cr Adams said.

"The last thing we want to see is someone hurt and we will continue to proactively patrol schools to keep everyone safe. If drivers do the wrong thing, council will issue a warning or fine."

Cr Adams said council received almost 1100 complaints about illegal and dangerous parking around schools last year.

The worst offender during term four was Anglican Church Grammar School, with 28 drivers slapped with a fine, followed by Villanova College where 19 infringements were dished out.
