Police / Concerns raised over drivers speeding in Tingwall

POLICE have reminded people to drive safely in Tingwall after receiving a number of complaints from local residents in the area – with particular concern around the school.

Static speed checks will continue to be carried out in the 20mph and 30mph zones in order to ensure the safety of pedestrians and other road users.

Police would like to remind road users to adhere to the temporary 20mph speed limits during school hours and drive with caution.

PC MacKenzie from Lerwick Police Station said: “We want to ensure the safety of children as they travel both to and from schools throughout Shetland and we ask that you adhere to these speed limits as such mandatory precautions are essential in both preventing accidents and protecting lives.

“I am pleased to report that the majority of drivers are demonstrating good standards of driving, however a police presence in these areas can be expected at any time to ensure these driving standards are upheld by all.”
