Roads: Restrictions

Volume 717: debated on Friday 5 March 2010


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether, following the judgment of the High Court in Peake v Director of Public Prosecutions published on 19 February, they will review the extent to which motorists are provided with an appropriate degree of certainty as to the restrictions in force on the road on which they are travelling. [HL2289]

The Department for Transport has no plans to review the signing of speeding restrictions on roads as a result of this judgment because the judgment appears to accord with the department's understanding of the position in relation to the legal requirements applying to speed limit signs.
