HC Deb 12 February 1930 vol 235 c446W

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that, owing to the rapid de-acceleration of electric tramcars when braking, a considerable number of road accidents are caused; and if he will consider introducing a regulation which would ensure that when a tramcar's brakes are applied a small electric triangular danger sign would automatically be lighted at the rear of every car?


As at present advised, I am not satisfied that it would be desirable to compel tramway undertakers to comply with the hon. and gallant Member's suggestion, but I am watching the result of certain experiments which are being made in this direction.
