Lancaster pupils crack down on speeding drivers

School children in Lancaster have teamed up with police officers to crack down on motorists who drive too fast.

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.”
