Road speeds reduced at Applecross Primary School. (09/12/08)
From Monday 15th December, 2008 motorists are being advised that new speed limits will be introduced at Applecross Primary School. Full time 30mph and part-time 20mph speed limits will be in place for children’s safety.
The 20mph part-time limit will operate on school days from 8:40am to 9:00am; 10:35am to 11:00am; 12:30pm to 1:30pm and 3:15pm to 3:30pm.
This will bring 67 of the 82 Highland Council schools in Ross Skye and Lochaber Area with a 20 mph speed limit in place.
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.
