Council warns motorists to slow down near Lochaber School (14/04/08)
Motorists are being warned that permanent 20mph speed restrictions are being introduced at another Lochaber school for children’s safety.
The new full time speed limit will come into force on Friday 18th April at Glencoe Primary School on Lorne Drive.
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.
Glencoe Primary will be the twenty fourth school in Lochaber to receive 20mph speed limits. To complete this programme in Lochaber another remaining four schools will have 20 limits installed.
