Reflective impact on speeders

Well-known Shifnal resident Peter Hassall is hoping his efforts will boost a local campaign to reduce speeding and improve safety in the town. The 20 is Plenty campaign aims to reduce speeding near schools and in certain residential and shopping areas and Peter is suggesting that children and parents walking to school are given reflective stickers to have an impact on speeding motorists.

“These dinner plate-sized reflective 20 zone stickers could be put on coats, satchels, pushchairs and would instantly remind passing vehicles of the that children and parents are serious about speed. I have put one of these stickers, which can be obtained from Shifnal Town Council, on my coat and cycled in and around Shifnal hoping drivers will take note.”
