Transport: Satellite Navigation Devices

Volume 685: debated on Monday 9 October 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they are taking steps to prevent the sale of satellite navigation devices which direct heavy goods vehicles on to roads where such vehicles are prohibited.[HL7290]

No. It is for drivers of all classes of vehicle to take responsibility for ensuring that they do not follow navigation advice—electronic or otherwise—which would cause them to contravene the law.
