HC Deb 07 May 1928 vol 217 cc19-20

asked the Minister of Transport whether he has received any complaints as to the speed of heavy motor vehicles and of damage to buildings caused by the vibration set up by them; and whether he will take early steps to confine such vehicles to their legal speed limits and to protect the owners of houses adjacent to main roads?

The MINISTER of TRANSPORT (Colonel Ashley)

I think there is some reason to hope that vibration caused by heavy traffic will decrease in the future owing to the improvements which are continually being made in road surfaces and in the design and construction of heavy motor vehicles. As regards the driving of vehicles at excessive speeds, the enforcement of the law is a matter for the police
