Council warns motorists to slow down near Sutherland school (28/11/07)
Motorists are being warned that part time 20mph speed restrictions have been introduced at another school in Sutherland for children’s safety.
The new speed limit came into force this week at Rogart Primary and will operate when pupils are expected to be arriving or departing from the school.
Drivers travelling near Rogart should be aware that the 20mph part time speed limit applies on school days from: 8.45 to 9.00am, 12.30 to 1.40pm, 2.45 to 3.00pm, and 3.15 to 3.30pm.
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.
