HC Deb 11 March 1980 vol 980 c533W
Mr. Pawsey

asked the Minister of Transport, in view of the increase in accidents involving powered vehicles since the introduction of new lighting regulations in April 1972, if he will re-introduce the lighting regulations in force prior to that date.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

No. Reintroduction of the former requirements for lighting of parked vehicles at night would cause substantial enforcement problems and it is doubtful whether it would significantly reduce the numbers of accidents involving parked vehicles at night.
