HC Deb 24 March 1927 vol 204 cc608-9W

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will consider making provision in his Road Traffic Bill for compelling all drivers of vehicles approaching a main road from a side road to see that the main road is clear at the junction before coming out of the side road?

Colonel ASHLEY

The Draft Bill in its present form would enable the Minister of Transport to control the nature of warning signs and the places where they should be erected. These provisions in conjunction with the provisions with regard to dangerous driving would practically meet my hon. Friend's point. There are, of course, considerable practical difficulties, which would need to be carefully weighed before any definite action on a large scale could be taken, should the Bill become law.
