Motorists Urged to Drive Responsibly Near Schools in Badenoch & Strathspey

By Reporter, The HighLand Times, Friday January 5 2018

Police in the Badenoch & Strathspey have reminded motorists to drive responsibly outside schools.

The warning follows recent concerns about driver behaviour on the roads outside Abernethy Primary School in Nethy Bridge before the Christmas holidays.

Commenting Constable Lewis Macleod said:

"Speeding or other anti-social driving around schools is highly dangerous and anyone caught driving in this manner will be dealt with appropriately.

"Driving past schools can be particularly hazardous at the start and end of the school day, with an increase in pedestrians and parked vehicles and especially at this time of year during longer hours of darkness. 

"We would like to praise the majority of drivers that drive with extra due care and attention at these times.

"I would urge anyone who has concerns about driver behaviour near schools to let us know as this will help us deal with any issues which arise."

Information can be passed to police by calling 101, or by speaking to any police officer.
