HC Deb 29 June 1910 vol 18 c932

asked the Home Secretary whether his attention had been called to the noises made by some motorists in and around London by way of signalling their approach to pedestrians and others; and whether he will consider the possibility of issuing an Order for a recognised signal which will serve all the purposes required without resorting to whistles or syrens calculated to cause a. danger or alarm?


My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply to this question. The method of signalling the approach of motor-cars is at present the subject of a Statutory enactment, which makes it difficult to deal with the matter by an Order as suggested. The point will be borne in mind in connection with any alteration of the law.
