Motion text

That this House recognises the great community effort by Saltoun Primary School pupils in helping to tackle speeding in the village of East Saltoun in East Lothian; notes that those pupils joined forces with community police officers and slowed down speeding cars to ask them a number of set questions as to why they were speeding in an effort to help influence drivers behaviour; understands that those pupils waved down vehicles and were set up beside the school and village hall alongside their teachers and the police; further notes that the police officers ensured that drivers not complying with the 20 mph limit were invited to speak to pupils and that both drivers and pupils were educated on road safety; remarks that that action will surely help those drivers think twice and abide by the speed limit when next driving through East Saltoun and other rural villages; and thanks the pupils, police and Saltoun Primary School staff for their efforts in raising awareness and taking action on rural speeding.
