Parents of children in Perthshire have been advised to take down road signs near a local school after being told they were illegal.

Two signs were purchased amid worries of the volume and speed of traffic on the route, but council officials have now said they are illegal and must be taken down.

The notices were introduced after parents asked Perth and Kinross Council for a crossing control, with this request then being turned down.

Local mum Caroline Buchanan stated: “We can’t believe this council has done this. The signs have had an immediate effect. People are slowing down and giving parents and children extra room.

“The school has a travel group involving parents and we have paid for the signs ourselves.”

She noted that the signs were installed for £150, after the council quoted them notices priced at £2000 that would be too small to have a positive effect.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801592076-ADNFCR
