Pupils enjoy sign of success in road safety
Primary school pupils in Cambuslang were out in force to help promote road safety around their building after drivers were caught doing three-point turns on narrow streets.
The primary six West Coats students were joined by local police officers as they spoke to vehicle owners about obstructing the roads around their school.
During a week-long campaign, the pupils braved all sorts of bad weather but enjoyed campaigning on Friday, May 19 when the sun beamed down.
The police officers reminded drivers that particularly where the surrounding roads are narrow, drivers should not do three-point turns outside the school or park on pavements obstructing access to and from the building.
Head teacher, Sheila Lynch said “West Coats Primary were delighted with the support families have given to the road safety campaign and would ask parents to continue to be mindful of road safety and maintain considerate parking, particularly in adverse weather.”
Pupils were joined by parent helpers, PC Dougie Hannah, PC Johnnie Simpson and two other officers from the Police Scotland local problem solving team, as well as parking attendants from South Lanarkshire Council, to promote safe parking and road safety awareness.
