The parents who run the SELFISH school are blocking families from leaving their driveways, angry residents have gone wild.
The Dodgy car park is described as “out of control” outside Llanishen Fach Primary School in Rhiwbina, Cardiff – with some mothers and fathers even telling locals to “stay away” when clashed.
Dave Thomson, who has lived in the area for more than 50 years, describes the “once pleasant suburb” as nothing more than “a car park”.
The 77-year-old said parents find it “acceptable” to block the driveway and park on the yellow line at drop-off and pick-up times.
Dave, the governor’s vice president, said he has repeatedly clashed with looters after challenging them about where they park their cars.
Rude replies are said to include “what does it have to do with you?” and “f*** off”.
Dave told WalesOnline: “A guy parked on the double yellow line at the corner, and you couldn’t see the main road, so I said, ‘can you move your car?’
“He told me to ‘turn it off’ and said, ‘what are you going to do with it?’
“As soon as you answer that question, you’re going to be confronted and hospitalized, so the answer is don’t retaliate.
“I’m not responding but I feel my card has been marked.”
