SCHOOLCHILDREN cycling the wrong way up a one-way road have been warned doing so creates “a very dangerous situation”.

A message was posted on Dunbar Grammar School’s website on Friday, November 6, highlighting problems with pupils making their way to school.

An online assembly has also been held as a reminder on cycling safety.

A spokeswoman for the school said: “We have received several concerns around students cycling the wrong way up the road in Lammermuir Crescent in the morning.

“This is a one-way system and cars are facing bikes, cycling the wrong way.

“This is a very dangerous situation.

“We ask that all parents and carers of students who cycle to school remind them that they must follow all rules of the road.

“We have also had a few concerns from members of the public regarding students cycling on pavements.

“We would also remind students that this is highly dangerous and is considered an offence under the Roads (Scotland) Act 1984.”
