Children issue 'road safety' message to motorists

Release date: 
Tuesday, 20 September, 2016

Councillors and residents join forces to call for safer driving on Moseley Road

When school children living on Moseley Road in Burnley showed Christine White some drawings they had done about road safety, she didn’t just say she liked them.

Christine, who was elected as a local councillor earlier this year, took it as a spur to step up a local campaign.

She arranged for the drawings to be turned into large posters to remind motorists that the speed limit on the road is 20 miles per hour.

Now residents have agreed to put the posters up on fences and stick them to their wheelie bins, which are put out every week along the road.

Councillor White said “there are signs at the entrances at the top and bottom of Moseley Road that the road is ‘access only’, and the speed limit is twenty.

“Unfortunately, a number of motorists disregard these rules and use it as a cut-through and go way over the limit. Moseley Road is winding and narrow, and many children live here. Residents are concerned about the risk of accidents.

“Lancashire County Council has agreed to refresh the ‘access only’ notices. These posters, using designs and drawings by local children, aim to complement the official signage and give a clear message to motorists’.
