PUPILS from Ballingry and Cowdenbeath are helping to get the message over to drivers to slow down.

Kids from St Kenneth's and St Bride's joined Police Scotland and 28 other schools in West and Central Fife to take a Stand Against Speeding.

It's a new campaign to promote road safety that's being spearheaded by the force and its youth volunteers, with youngsters holding up interchangeable messages for passing motorists.

Concerns have been raised with cops about speeding on roads, particularly around schools, and the hope is the initiative will make drivers think twice and slow down.

A post on Dunfermline Police's Twitter feed explained: "Stand Against Speeding will be visiting 30 primary schools over two days.

"Children and young people are working with community police and Dunfermline Police Scotland Youth Volunteers, promoting road safety.

"Don't speed. Slow down."
