HC Deb 06 November 1929 vol 231 c1050W

asked the Minister of Transport if he will, in order to prevent a frequent cause of accidents, insert in the Transport Bill the provision that cars drawing up at the side of the road after lighting-up time must be pointed in the same direction as the traffic on that side?


I have under consideration the inclusion, in any legislation that may be introduced to deal with road traffic, of a provision making it an offence to leave a motor vehicle in a position dangerous to other traffic using the road. In the case of a well lighted street a general provision of the nature suggested by the hon. Member might cause unnecessary inconvenience, and even danger owing to the necessity of reversing vehicles in order that they might point in the proper direction.
