HC Deb 16 July 1956 vol 556 c72W
Mr. Speir

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether he will arrange for steps to be taken to make the halt sign more readily visible to motorists at the junction of the military road with the A.69 road at Greenhead, Northumberland.

Mr. Watkinson

Both the county surveyor and the chief constable consider that the present sign is quite satisfactory, and that backing boards would not secure a greater measure of obedience. The conditions at this junction tempt motorists to disregard the sign deliberately and, instead of stopping, to enter the main road from the military road at some speed, so as to help them up the hill ahead.
