Hello, I am looking for help and being pointed in the right direction to achieving a 20mph during school drop off and collection times.
The primary school is on the main A6 running through our village. There is a local high traffic volume, especially with large lorries and bus’.
In the past 4 weeks two large vehicles have gone through a red light on the pelican crossing outside the school. The pavement is narrow and vehicles will come past very close to the curb.
I have spoken to the Council who stated there is nothing they can do as there are the triangle school road signs and a pelican crossing.
Can you advise me as to what I can do to persuade the Council 20mph is necessary in making the walk to School safer for our young children?
Kind regards. Leanne.
