HC Deb 08 May 1968 vol 764 c416
45. Mr. George Jeger

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware of the confusion caused by the lack of uniformity of regulations governing the parking of vehicles at night without lights in different areas; and whether he will take the necessary steps to eliminate local variations of parking restrictions.

Mr. Bob Brown

We are aware that the present regulations are subject to criticism on various grounds and are considering possible ways of amending them.

Mr. Jeger

Is this matter being considered in consultation with chief constables and officials of the various local authorities to get their co-operation?

Mr. Brown

This type of consideration always has the ear of chief constables and local authorities.

Mr. Brooks

Would my hon. Friend consider tightening up the regulations governing single parking lights on vehicles, because in certain circumstances vehicles so parked may be totally invisible to oncoming traffic?

Mr. Brown

That, too, is a point well worth bearing in mind.
