Quotes

...But it is a pet hate of many a motorway driver when stuck behind the middle lane hogger. Road Safety Minister Stephen Hammond said "careless drivers are a menace and their negligence puts innocent people's lives at risk. that is why we are making it easier for the police to tackle problem drivers by allowing them to immediately issue a fixed penalty notice rather than needing to take every offender to court.”"
In a Commons debate earlier this year, then-rail minister Stephen Hammond had said: "we expect to ask bidders for the northern franchise to put forward proposals for the removal of pacers from the area." The news comes after it was revealed most rail fares across the country will rise in January
Transport Minister Stephen Hammond said at the time the service was binned: "it is essential that all road users have the right skills to use our roads safely and responsibly. by stopping driving tests in foreign languages we will cut out the risk of fraud, and help to ensure that all drivers can read road signs and fully understand the rules of the road.”"
