To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will launch a national campaign for the strict observation of road speed law.

Speed limits are set for the protection of all road users. Every driver should observe them responsibly without special campaigns: sensible drivers go at lower speeds when it is foggy, dark or raining and adopt a safe driving distance from other vehicles. In residential areas, we welcome and encourage the engineering measures that local authorities are taking to slow vehicles to safe speeds.
