In order to improve traffic safety of kids on their way to school, as well as the safety of all other traffic participants, two radar speed signs have been placed near the Primary School "Braća Ribar" in Nikšić. The purpose of these signs is to preventively influence drivers to reduce their traffic speed by making them aware of it and in case of exceeding speed limit, warn them to reduce the speed by the message "SLOW DOWN! SCHOOL!"
The location of the radar speed signs has been recognised by the Secretariat for Utility and Traffic of the Municipality of Nikšić as one of the most-at-risk when it comes to traffic safety of kids near schools.
