Mini Police join National
Road Safety Week campaign
have taken out their Mini Police to carry out a campaign to warn speeding
drivers in Bootle and Litherland, as part of National Road Safety Week.
Members of Hatton Hill Primary School's Mini Police have stopped
around 20 vehicles, on Hatton Hill Road, 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, also 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 this makes people think twice about their driving, especially
near to schools, the roads will be much safer for everyone."
