Parents using the 'slow' red Tarmac surface as a crossing for the school. It now has one sign facing towcester saying it is a humped zebra crossing, but it isn't. I stopped today to let parent cross but the traffic coming from the other direction didn't stop as there is no sign facing the other way. Parents do think it is a crossing for the school but I don't think it is.
