Pupils from a Bellshill primary school took to the streets with speed cameras to highlight the dangers of speeding drivers.

North Lanarkshire Council’s Junior Road Safety Officers (JRSOs) from Lawmuir Primary learned about the impact of driving above the speed limit, in support of Police Scotland’s campaign to reduce the number of road accidents.

The JRSOs met with police officers outside the school to identify speeding and other inappropriate driver behaviours, like using a mobile phone or not wearing a seatbelt.

Superintendent Richard Thomas of Police Scotland, Lanarkshire Division said: “We continue to listen to our communities and will take action to address the issues that affect them, particularly in relation to road safety.

“Selfish and inconsiderate driving by a minority of drivers is unacceptable and officers are committed to working with communities and partner agencies, to increase the safety of all road users.

“When offences are identified, officers will take the appropriate action to educate those involved and where necessary, enforce legislation to reduce the number of casualties on our roads.”
