VILLAGE SCHOOLS JOIN ’20 IS PLENTY’ INITIATIVE

By timesecholife on in Latest News

SCHOOLS in Tean and Rocester are taking part in a special road safety campaign at the start of the new term.

Staffordshire County Council’s ’20 is Plenty’ scheme encourages drivers to reduce their speed outside school premises.
Greatwood Primary, in Tean, and Ryecroft Middle School, in Rocester, are among 16 schools from the county to take part in the initiative, which will be in place when pupils arrive in the morning and at home time in the afternoon – with Speed Indication Devices (SIDs) used to display the speed of a vehicle as it passes by.
Helen Fisher, cabinet support member for Highways and Transport at the county council, said: “This is an important scheme that helps to keep school children and our roads among the safest in the country.
“We’re in the eighth year of the scheme now and so far more than 200 schools across the county have benefited from it.
“The campaign calls on drivers to avoid putting pupils’ lives at risk by driving above 20 miles an hour when outside schools.
“The scheme is also encouraging more parents and children to walk and cycle to school which helps to reduce congestion at school times.”
