Put the brakes on near Skye school

Issued: 29 Mar 2007

Motorists on the Isle of Skye are being warned that permanent 20mph speed restrictions are being introduced at another school for children's safety.

The new speed limit comes into force on Limepark Terrace and Cul A Chuirn, Broadford on the 2nd April, 2007. This covers the road at the entrance to Broadford Primary School.

This will be the tenth School in the Skye and Lochalsh Area to have a 20mph speed limit in place. The other schools are: Auchtertyre, Carbost, Kyle, Kyleakin, Loch Duich, Plockton, Portree, and Uig Primaries and Portree High.

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.
