All speeding fines to be spent on road safety instead
The Government will make £965 million available for road safety by ending speed humps, reducing the number of parking fines, providing guidance on how to pay and establishing a National Roads Strategy.
The Road Traffic Act 2010 will be replaced with a new vehicle standard so speeding is no longer covered under the speed limits, but will still need to pay a £24 fines i김해출장마사지nstead.
A maximum speed limit for vehicles will be increased to 55mph.
The bill was published for formal consultation today and the Government said it will bring £4 billion to local authorities through reduced traffic congestion.

“The changes announced today brin양산출장마사지g £17 billion to the Government’s road budget th라이브 카지노is parliament, and we’re confident they will save lives in Birmingham and across Scotland by ensuring people get their journeys under control while keeping people safe,” said Transport Secretary Chris Grayling.
“There is much to be learned from similar pilot projects in other regions and I am committed to continuing to improve road safety.
“Under our plan, we will reduce the number of traffic offences that can be imposed on vehicles under the speed limits and also create an infrastructure that will meet the demand of cyclists, and make our roads safer for all.”
‘Impact on traffic safety’
The measure – being made as part of the overall National Infrastructure Plan to improve safety in the UK – also has a key legislative role, preventing the removal of an obstacle, as well as preventing people from causing serious collisions on the roads.
Mr Grayling said this measure would have an impact on road safety.
“If we remove one road safety measure to bring a further £3bn to the road budget – we will have a better chance to reduce the number of people killed or seriously injured in road traffic accidents,” he said.
“If we add one additional measure – such as traffic calming measures – we can save £2.5bn every year in road accident costs, while preventing more than 700 people a year being killed or seriously injured in crashes in the United Kingdom.”
There will also be increased financial support for communities that are affected by low road capacity, with councils also given an additional £2.25 for every 100 vehicles added per year, as part of the national road plan.
The money will be spent on projects to reduce road capacity, repair road surfaces and improve cycle paths
