With the summer holidays over, and school back in full swing, Peugeot is reminding motorists that by utilising a speed limiter, found in many cars, they can drive safely - and with better fuel economy - around schools.

Peugeot is asking customers and any driver with a speed limiter equipped in their vehicle to limit their car to 20mph when driving near schools and in residential areas.

Morgan Lecoupeur, Director of Marketing for Peugeot UK, said: "Excessive speed is widely regarded as the number one contributor of road accidents, and keeping a speed below 20 mph makes total sense when driving in residential areas or near schools.

"However, maintaining 20 mph or lower in a modern car is taxing in itself, but in truth it needn't have to be due to speed limiters fitted to most new models. Once a desired speed is set, our system prevents the driver from exceeding that velocity."
