§ Mr. Crawshaw
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if, to assist motorists who inadvertently fail to notice a speed restriction sign, he will consider the feasibility of marking in an appropriate colour at frequent intervals a two or three foot strip of the white lane 909W marker so as to indicate the speed limit in force at that particular spot.
§ Mr. Marks
The Traffic Signs (Speed Limits) Regulations and General Directions 1969 require that signs indicating a local speed limit be repeated at frequent intervals except where a 30 mph limit is indicated by street lighting. I do not, therefore, see any need to incur the expense of guidance such as suggested by my hon. Friend.
