Trucks travelling on single carriageways in the UK will be able to go at 50mph in 2015 in an effort to reduce overtaking which is causing accidents on the road. Many motorists become frustrated travelling behind slow moving vehicles and make dangerous maneuvers with limited visibility to get ahead of the heavy goods vehicles. The Government hopes that by removing the restrictions on the lorries it will enable them to travel at speeds which will be seen as more acceptable by other road users.
Road safety campaigners have voiced their concern at such changes believing any increase in speed for used trucks will only lead to more accidents on the road as opposed to less. Further developments are expected on the issue before the changes in law are implemented in 2015. Find stock from Truck Traders currently available for sale on advertising sites.
