Aberdeenshire council is set to carry out a pedestrian count and speed survery on a busy Fraserburgh road.
Resident Bruce Farquhar, launched a petition to rally support for the introduction of a crossing patrol and a 20mph speed limit.
It was confirmed by the council this week that it will look into the problems caused on Buchan Road.
A council spokeswoman said: “We will carry out a pedestrian count and a speed survey both before and after the start of the school and college terms.
“After the surveys are complete, we will analyse the information gathered and if measures are required to be put in place we will take the necessary steps.”
