HC Deb 15 May 1963 vol 677 c152W
52. Mr. Stodart

asked the Minister of Transport whether, with a view to reducing the risk of road accidents caused by vehicles halted on the highway, he will examine the effect of requiring drivers to place a red triangle at a specified distance behind their vehicles when these are parked or broken down upon the road.

Vice-Admiral Hughes Hallett

My right hon. Friend proposes shortly to make regulations authorising the use of such warning signs in certain circumstances. The powers in Section 33 of the Road Traffic Act, 1962, do not enable him to require drivers to use such signs.
