Council completes speed reduction measures at Skye Schools

From Monday 3rd November, part-time 20 mph speed limits will come into operation for children’s’ safety at Kilmuir, Knockbreck and Staffin Primary Schools.

This will complete The Highland Council’s 20 mph speed limit around schools programme on the Isle of Skye and Raasay.
The part time signs will operate when pupils are arriving and departing from school during term time as follows at Kilmuir Primary from 8:55am to 9:15am and 3:15pm to 3:30pm; at Knockbreck and Staffin Primaries from 8:40am to 9:00am and 3:15pm 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.
