Pupils from a Westcliff primary school are set to tackle speeding motorists.No, they aren’t going to be given speed guns, but they are going to be given motorists a stern talking-to:
Traffic cops will stand by the road-side recording the speed of oncoming vehicles and stopping any motorists caught speeding.Which prompted this comment:
The driver is then given the option of either accepting a £30 fine and three points on their licence, or speaking to pupils who go to the nearby school.
If they do opt to speak to the children, they will be asked a series of questions, which the children themselves have devised, and given a poster to go home with to remind them of their experience.
Alan Jacobs says...Heh!
Blimey all the kiddie fiddlers are gonna be holding drag races on Salisbury Ave.
But what isn’t quite so funny is that this is considered appropriate use of school time…
