Motion text

That his House welcomes the Transport Committee's Report on Traffic Law and its Enforcement and its call for a radical overhaul of the law on driving offences, campaigned for for more than a decade by RoadPeace and members of the public, 40,000 of whom have signed a petition to that end delivered to this House; supports the Committee's opposition to the illogical criteria for speed camera installation which, contrary to criteria applied to other road safety or public health interventions, demands that no fewer than four people must have been killed or seriously injured in three years for one camera to be permitted, a brutal requirement confirmed a few days ago by the Secretary of State for Transport in the Handbook for Safety Camera Partnerships; further supports the Committee's categorical rejection of the recent graduated fixed penalty proposals which undermine road safety work of many years and the Government's own message that speed kills, and which, if implemented, would lead to even more road deaths and injuries; and calls on all parliamentarians to ensure that Parliament finally addresses the injustice of the present road traffic law and that traffic law enforcement becomes a police priority.
