Slow down near Highland schools

Issued: 18 Jun 2007

Council warns motorists to slow down near Highland schools.
Motorists are being warned that part time 20mph speed restrictions are being introduced at two more schools for children's safety.

The new speed limit comes into force at Dunvegan and Glenelg Primaries on Monday 25th June, 2007.

The speed limits at the two primaries are part-time and will operate when pupils are expected to be arriving or departing from the schools.

Drivers travelling near Dunvegan Primary School should be aware that the 20mph part time speed limit applies on school days from: 9:00am to 9:25am and 3:25pm to 4pm. At Glenelg Primary the part time limits apply from 8:50am to 9:15am and 3:15pm to 3:45pm.

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.
