Mini Police - Speed Operation
As part of our Health and Well being week, some of our Mini Police attended Walton Lane Police Station where they were engaged in a local speed operation. Here, the children saw Officers check the speed of vehicles travelling down Walton Lane.
Some drivers were spoken to by the Police, whilst others were spoken to by our Mini Police. The children set up a Mini Police Court inside the station and asked drivers a range of questions regarding their speed, including the implications of their actions and dangers on our roads.
Walton Lane has a maximum speed limit of 30mph. Some drivers believed it to be 40mph.
Our Mini Police were providing safe messages to the public to drive safely and slowly near our school.
With special thanks to the Officers at Walton Lane for their help and support.
