HC Deb 13 February 2004 vol 418 c51W
Mr. Greg Knight

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will establish a road safety campaign to discourage heavy goods vehicles from using the third lane on motorways. [153251]

Dr. Howells

Heavy goods vehicles have been prohibited from using the right hand lane of motorways with three or more lanes, since 1967. This is explained in Rule 239 of the Highway Code. The evidence is that the law is appropriate, respected by drivers and effective.
