Road Traffic and Transport Bill 2006: Second Stage
John Dardis (Progressive Democrats)
That is something that should not happen, obviously. An increasing number of road signs seem to be getting clipped by lorries, vans and trailers. I do not know why that is happening.
I welcome the provisions of this Bill which relate to the national and international licensing of commercial vehicles. It is right that the Minister for Transport has availed of this opportunity to include such sensible provisions in legislation. I compliment the Minister on his work which has meant that things are progressing in the right direction. He knows that things are certainly not perfect, but they are better than they were.
