Police disappointed

TWO DRIVERS have been reported to the procurator fiscal for speeding within the 20 miles per hour zones outside Shetland schools.
Four further drivers have been given fixed penalties for speeding during police controls at Sound School, in Lerwick, and Scalloway Junior High School, on Monday and Tuesday.
Shetland police said they were disappointed that some motorists were still not complying with speed restrictions outside island schools.
The 20 miles per hour speed limit is clearly indicated by flashing signs on the approach to the schools.
Constable Dace Sweeney said: “Further speed checks will be carried out at schools in Shetland on a regular basis as the safety of school children is paramount.”
Police also handed out fixed penalties to two drivers for failing to wear a seatbelt and to one driver for using a mobile phone while driving.
Meanwhile, a vehicle was seized for having no insurance, with the male driver being reported to the procurator fiscal.
