§ 8. Mr. Bidwell
asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will initiate a specific publicity campaign to urge stricter observance of road speed limitations; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Ridley
We are currently issuing, with excise duty reminders, some 11.5 million leaflets advising drivers of national legal speed limits. I am considering how our rolling national publicity campaign will shortly be emphasising the need to drive at a safe speed for the conditions and at a safe distance from the vehicle in front.
