HC Deb 23 January 1986 vol 90 c301W
76. Mr. Greg Knight

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what steps he is taking to improve and simplify road traffic law.

Mr. Ridley

On 31 January 1985, I announced the setting up of a review body under the chairmanship of Dr. Peter North to examine a number of the most important and pressing issues of our road traffic law. These include the struture of offences relating to reckless and careless driving; the penalty points system and the possibility of new types of penalty for traffic offences. The review body is currently studying responses to the consultation document issued in July, a copy of which is in the Library.
