Traffic Signs to Slow Drivers Down
Schools in the United Kingdom have found that the number one road hazard for their students are the children's parents, and traffic safety signs designed by the kids are now helping to slow traffic down.
The schools, along with local police and community organizations, held a contest where the children designed slow down traffic signs to help alert speeding drivers (often parents) of the urgent need to slow down.
Traffic checks in the area confirmed that parents are the drivers who most often speed, and the traffic safety signs from their own children was thought to be a great way to raise road safety awareness.
A copy of the winning traffic safety signs will be made and displayed near the schools to spread the message of traffic safety.Photo Credit: Ann Douglas via Compfight cc
