High visibility signage can make children safer on their way to school

Highly visible health and safety signage can help to improve safety on schools' public transport systems.

According to the Press and Journal, buses taking children to schools across Aberdeenshire are set to adopt high visibility signage to alert other road users to their presence.

Aberdeenshire Council, which piloted a scheme using red and yellow warning signs to make motorists drive with more care, will action a permanent county-wide phase-in if councillors support the plan.

The newspaper said that a report prepared for councillors detailing the safety signs proposal stated: "Given the positive results from the evaluation of the new trial school bus signs, it is recommended that the rollout of the new school bus signage across Aberdeenshire should be progressed."

However, the deployment of a piloted bus stop design that flashes lights when children are near it, called the SeeMe system, will not go ahead because it does not conform to UK regulations.

During the trial the interactive system cut driving speeds by up to 13 per cent, and 86 per cent of drivers, responding to a survey, said it made them more aware of schoolchildren, the newspaper said.
