HC Deb 06 February 1992 vol 203 c221W
Mr. Fearn

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what research his Department has undertaken on the causes of accidents on motorways.

Mr. Chope

The main causes of motorway accidents, driving too fast and too close to the vehicle in front, have been established for some years. Current departmental research is aimed at developing solutions and includes experiments with chevron markings; yellow bar markings on slip roads; automatic fog and incident detection equipment and advanced variable message signs.
