§ 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.
