Mullan welcomes 20mph zone scheme outside schools

Sinn Féin MLA Karen Mullan has welcomed the introduction of temporary reduced speed limits at 100 schools across the north.

The Foyle MLA said:

“The Infrastructure Minister’s announcement of 20mph speed limits outside 100 schools across the north is welcome news for pupils, parents and teachers.

“Reducing speed outside schools and protecting children walking to school must be a priority and I welcome action from the Executive to tackle speed.

“Everyone has a part to play in reducing speed outside our schools, including drivers and I would urge them to slow down when driving near schools.”
