Police are being asked to clamp down on dangerous drivers next to an Aberdeen school.
Councillor Alexander McLellan, who represents Tillydrone/Seaton/Old Aberdeen, called for action over the speed and increased number of vehicles passing Sunnybank School.
He said: “The community council raised concerns about folk speeding at Bedford Place and Sunnybank Road with the streets having become significantly busier recently.
“I have written to Police Scotland and asked them to take urgent action.
“The safety of the children attending the primary school has to be of paramount importance.
“I am sure the police will look into this as it is absolutely unacceptable for folk to be driving past a primary school well above the speed limit.”
A traffic survey carried out over four days at the beginning of the month revealed that, although the average speed was only marginally above the 20mph limit, some drivers were travelling significantly faster.
In an e-mail sent to police, Cllr McLellan said: “The survey suggests that there are motorists travelling as fast as 28mph.
“Further to this, it bothers me even more that there is a primary school on the road in question.
“I would ask that you take urgent action to make sure motorists are complying with the speed limits.”
A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: “We’re aware of concerns about driver behaviour in the Kittybrewster area.
“Roads safety is a priority for officers and a robust approach will be taken against anyone caught speeding.”
An Aberdeen City Council spokeswoman said: “Sunnybank Road is being assessed as part of the 3rd Don review. This review is ongoing and a report is due back to the communities, housing and infrastructure committee in August.
“This report is looking at the before and after volumes and speeds and some of the streets within Sunnybank will form part of this review.”
