New school signs to curb speeding drivers

NEW signs designed by a pupil at a Somerset school are being displayed on a busy road in a bid to encourage motorists to slow down.

Nine-year-old Fabian Eke, of Shipham First School, won a competition to create a road safety sign, which will be put up around the Turnpike Road building.

The contest was the brainchild of PCSO Matt Hawker who came up with the idea during Road Safety Week last November.

Highbridge sign maker Personal Print Company has provided the signs free of charge.

PCSO Hawker said: “Shipham has a Speed Watch group but these signs will be a permanent reminder to people to slow down on this busy commuter road.”
