A Newcastle school has fitted new warning signs to inform drivers of the 20mph speed limit in its area.

Speed indication devices have been installed on the road near St Chad's Primary, with the school set to be one of 16 sites throughout Staffordshire that will take advantage of the driving restrictions, reports This Is Staffordshire.

Speaking to the news provider, headteacher Sam Clarke said: "It can only be a good thing to encourage road users to drive slower. One of the biggest problems is the parking and it is a busy road."

Mr Clarke explained that the restriction is being enforced to cause people to contemplate their speed.

It comes after reported that vehicle activated safety signs have been introduced on Horton Lane in Epsom.

The installations warn motorists who have been caught exceeding 45mph. Also, a community speed watch scheme has begun, with volunteers reporting any road users who are travelling at illegal speeds.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801343776-ADNFCR
