Merseyside Police Mini Police have carried out a campaign to warn speeding drivers
Merseyside Police Mini Police have carried out a campaign to warn speeding drivers as part of National Road Safety Week.
Members of Hatton Hill Primary School Mini Police stopped around 20 vehicles on Hatton Hill Road yesterday morning, using the speed gun and issuing warning letters and posters to drivers, advising them to stick to the speed limit. Later on, members of St Monica's Catholic Primary School in Bootle carried out a campaign near to their school, stopping a further 10 vehicles to issue advice. Neighbourhood Sergeant Jon Coote said: “When our young Mini Police stop drivers, the dangers of speeding really hit home. We are so proud of the excellent work the Mini Police are doing with us since their introduction. "If yesterday makes people think twice about their driving, especially near to schools, the roads will be much safer for everyone.”
