Children design their own road safety signs

3rd February 2010 | Warning Signs

Pupils have designed their own road safety signs to encourage motorists to slow down.

The Hounslow children at an Isleworth school have helped to advertise a new 20mph speed limit through the Ivybridge Estate in Isleworth, reported the Hounslow Chronicle.

One lucky pupil will see her lucky sign go on display to alert drivers to the new speed limit, which councillor Paul Fisher said has been years in the making.

The lead member for community safety and parking told the newspaper: "Residents have been requesting the 20mph limit for many years now and especially a safer crossing near sheltered housing unit, Kirkstone Lodge and the Ivybridge school."

Elsewhere in the country, councils have had to pay to correct road signs after spelling and grammatical errors were spotted.

The BBC said that hundreds of pounds have been spent on fixing the signs, including amending a missing apostrophe on a wall sign for St James's Street and changing another from Kenilworth Road to Kenilworth Avenue.
