A new Twenty’s Plenty sign has been unveiled in Tendring - after youngsters were invited to design the eye-catching road safety poster.
Hope Singleton, of St George’s Primary School in Great Bromley, came up with the winning design - which will now be used in the fight to reduce the speed of cars outsides schools in the district. Hope won a £500 prize for her school, which will be spent on equipment, as well as a family wristband for Clacton Pier for herself.
Fred Nichols, Tendring District Council’s cabinet member for corporate enforcement, said; “This poster by Hope, which is a cracking design, will really help to get the message to drivers that they should slow down near schools.
“Lowering the speed limit is proven to reduce the number of accidents, and should a collision occur your chances of surviving are vastly increased at 20mph compared to 30mph.
“To me this is a no-brainer.”
