Motor insurance: Safety banners made

Monday, 07 April 2008

New road safety measures have been introduced outside a school in Oxford after motorists started to park on zigzags there.

Pupils have designed banners that can be placed by the venue - Windmill Primary School - because the problem had become so severe, reports the Oxford Mail.

As part of Road Safety Week that occurred last year, pupils sought to put their message across and the best design was singled out by Police Constable Jerry Kidd at Thames Valley police.

Lynn Knapp, headteacher at the school, asserted that this is good way for children to highlight road dangers to their parents and that there have been "near-misses" between youngsters and drivers.

"We had one driver who had to get out of his car recently because he thought he had knocked a child over," she told the news source.

Motorists caught breaking the law may find that their car insurance premiums are negatively impacted upon.
