HC Deb 07 March 1946 vol 420 c121W
Mr. Garry Allighan

asked the Minister of War Transport whether he will take steps to see that all future traffic signals are placed about 20 yards back from the corners in order to increase road safety.

Mr. Barnes

Experience has shown that, to avoid delays and the possibility of accidents occurring in changing the right of way from one road to another, the distance to be covered by vehicles from the stop line to the far side of the junction should be as small as is reasonably possible. I do not think, therefore, that my hon. Friend's suggestion would increase road safety
