Slow Down Around schools

This morning 8 students, 5 police and two travelwise community workers went out on Frielanders road to remind our community that they need to slow down when they pass our school.

With a heavy fog this morning we were not able to use the police speed guns, but the police were able to use their car radars to record the speeds of cars coming towards our crossings.

We had a simple message for parents who were going slow around our school a clever designed postcard and a travelwise pen

For parents who were going to fast our message was simple- Please slow down so we can keep our kids safe!
The speed limit is 50 km, so stay under the limit!

Thanks for having a positive attitude and keeping the speed down. Only two cars received a ticket this morning (Going 62kms!!!) Everyone else was so friendly and open to our students talking to them about their safety message!

Keep our kids safe, slow down around our schools.

You can see the thick fog we had to deal with this morning, surprisingly people were still speeding!

Mikaere is sitting in the back sit (Nice and warm) recording the speeds of all the cars going past.

Our friendly police were also out giving warnings to cars to have lights on during the fog.

After the police approached the car and asked if it was okay, the students approached them with their messages, either a thumbs up for good driving, or a thumbs down for going to fast.
