Motor Insurance: Headteachers 'worried about fast cars'
Tuesday, 02 October 2007
Primary school headteachers in the Ipswich area have said that they are concerned about speeding drivers in the area.
Headteacher at Gusford Primary School Colin Tapscott stated that drivers going too fast in the area are becoming a major concern, reports the Evening Star.
Such thoughts were echoed by the head at Sprites Primary School, Shaun Valentine, who stated that there is no traffic control at the school and this has exacerbated the problem.
"Although Ipswich borough council has tried to put things in place to prevent the speeding such as speed bumps, it's actually exaggerated the problem rather than alleviate it as they are flat bumps and people just go over them faster," he told the paper.
The schools are looking at ways to alleviate the current situation.
Drivers who are caught speeding may face more expensive motor insurance. Recently, the Safe Drive Stay Alive Roadshow looked to teach children the dangers of irresponsible driving.
