Youngsters quiz safety experts

A PANEL of road safety experts were put through their paces by youngsters from over 60 schools during a “Question Time” event.

Junior road safety officers quizzed the experts, including Guy McGregor, Suffolk County councillor for roads, transport and planning, with questions and concerns as part of an awards ceremony for school safety schemes last week.

Schools were given awards for the quality and content of the schemes they ran, with Beaumont Community Primary in Hadleigh among those receiving a gold award and Woodhall Community Primary in Sudbury a bronze.

David Chenery, road safety group manager, said: “The scheme has been running in Suffolk for over eight years and we get some searching questions about road safety from the young people.”
