Drivers urged to go slow near City schools

Issued: 13 Mar 2007

Motorists in Inverness are being warned that permanent 20mph speed restrictions are being introduced near two more schools for children's safety.

The new speed limits come into force at St Joseph's and Bishop Eden Primaries on King Street, Inverness on Wednesday 14th March, 2007.

This addition brings the total number of schools benefiting from new speed limits in Inverness Area to 24, and in Highland to 95 at present.

Motorists are reminded that if they speed in the vicinity of Highland schools then the penalties will be tough. The Highland Council, Northern Constabulary and the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service (Highlands and Islands Area) are clear that if motorists are caught speeding near Highland schools where a 20mph limit is in place, then robust enforcement action will be taken by both the Police and the Procurator Fiscal Service.
