Children have created speed signs in a bid to slow motorists down outside their school.
The pupils at Moorlands Primary in Mount have been boosted by the introduction of a 20mph zone.
And to help get the message across their own handiwork will warn drivers of the speed limit.
Deputy headteacher Janet Thornton said: “The 20mph enforcement and additional traffic calming is a welcome addition in support of the safety of the children at Moorlands.
“Involving the children in designing the signs supported their understanding of the need for parents and other drivers to slow down and take extreme care near school.”
The new 20mph zone came into force this month and covers the whole length of Moorlands Road, Moorlands Crescent and Shannon Drive.
Signs and one flat top speed hump have been added to boost the existing traffic-calming features.
Huddersfield YMCA has also given permission for their car park to be used as part of a Park and Stride scheme which it allows parents to park there and walk their children to school to ease congestion.
Funding for the scheme was secured from Huddersfield Area Committee by Clr Cahal Burke, a Lindley Liberal Democrat, who helped secure £15,000 for the project. It came about after concerns from parents, residents and school staff.
Clr Burke said: “The introduction of the 20mph zone and the children’s signs are the latest elements in a package of things we done over the last few years to improve road safety outside Moorlands Primary.
“In addition to the 20mph zone and signs, traffic-calming is now in place along the road and a Park and Stride scheme set up with the help and support of the YMCA.
“The school has an ongoing commitment to working with and educating parents and pupils about road safety as well as having an excellent crossing patrol.
“The council’s enforcement team and the police also provide support to the school which we are very grateful for.
“Collectively our goal is to make the roads around the school safer and happier places to be and we are doing everything we can to achieve this.”
Clr Burke added: “Bringing the speed limit down to 20mph outside schools is the right thing to do and I would like to see it happen elsewhere as well.”
