HC Deb 19 December 1975 vol 902 cc908-9W
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 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.
