Comments on Suggested Future Regulations
A misunderstanding has developed that the Provincial Road Traffic Bill encompasses a reduction in the speed limit and a number of other traffic matters. It does not. These are proposals that are being mooted for the future and do not form part of the Bill nor do they form part of the public participation process associated with the Provincial Road Traffic Bill.
No regulations have or are being drafted other than for blue light and cyclists. Members of the public wishing to comment on any of the proposals, such as speed limit reductions, child restraints, scholar transport etc, or suggest further or alternative proposals, should comment directly to the Ministry of Transport and Public Works, as follows:
