Year 6 pupils at St. Leo’s and Southmead primary in Whiston track down speeding drivers.
These children in Whiston have been counting the cost of life in the fast lane.
They used radar equipment to track the speed of drivers on a busy road near their school - St Leo’s and Southmead primary.
They also looked at how many drivers were wearing seatbelts and how long it would take them to stop if a child stepped out into the road.
The Year 6 pupils discussed the results later and watched a DVD about the effects of drivers and passengers behaving badly.
It’s all part of the ‘Life in the Fast Lane’ scheme run by Knowsley Council’s Road Safety team.
St Leo’s and Southmead head, Jeanette Grundy, said it’s particularly important for the pupils leaving for secondary school this year.
She said: “They’ll be making longer journeys and crossing busy roads and this scheme helps them find practical ways to deal with traffic hazards.
”We’re encouraging all of our children to walk and cycle to school so it’s vital we show them how to do these things safely.”
The Fast Lane scheme is delivered in schools across Knowsley.
