Lancaster pupils crack down on speeding drivers
The pupils from Lancaster Royal Grammar school took part in the Roadwatch scheme at a check point on Quernmore Road in Lancaster.
Over a two hour period 165 vehicles passed through the check point with 11 drivers being spoken to by pupils regarding their speed.
Community Beat Manager PC Gillian Syer said: “Both the pupils and the drivers found the scheme to be very effective, I think motorists are more likely to think twice about speeding when they’re being spoken to by a youngster and hopefully this operation will make the young people think about the dangers of speeding when they eventually become drivers themselves.”
