School Speed Watch

School pupils in North Devon are helping to cut the number of speeding drivers.

Children are working with local police to catch speeding drivers near their school - the drivers then have the choice of either a police penalty, or being interviewed by the children.

The scheme's been trialled in other parts of the county.  1400 warning letters have been sent out, but only 20 second stage warnings have been given, and no-one's been caught a third time.

Victoria's from Winkleigh Primary School, which is taking part in the project.  She said: "We're trying to lower the speed down to 30 in the rural areas around here, so there's no accidents that happen around our school."
