Motorists urged to slow down at three Highland Schools

Three more schools in the Highlands have had 20 mph speed limits introduced for children’s safety.

At Inver Primary School, near Tain an advisory 20’s Plenty speed limit has been introduced.

A part-time 20 mph speed limit has been introduced on Perrins Road Alness, near Bridgend Primary School.  The limit will be in operation when pupils are normally expected to arrive at or depart from the school, from: 8:40am to 9am; 2.30pm to 2.45pm; and 3pm to 3.15pm.
A permanent 20 mph speed limit has been introduced on the Badcaul – Badluarach road from its junction with the A832 to north of Badcaul Primary school Dundonnell by Garve.

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.
