Villages call for ban on HGVs

Local councils have called on the government to introduce new limits on the types of HGVs that can drive through villages.
Villages call for ban on HGVs

The Local Government Association has claimed that a recent surge of accidents involving HGVs in villages means that the weight limit of these vehicles in rural areas should be increased.

The group says that lorries planning routes through villages has “brought bedlam” to some communities and the lack of policing is not helping.

Recently, there have been a number of high profile cases of lorry drivers getting into accidents or becoming stuck when driving through villages.

One driver was forced to sleep in his lorry for three nights after his sat nav led him down a small country lane near Plymouth. Another brought down power lines in the Devon village of Uffculme in the middle of the night.

The LGA says that measures should be taken straight away in order to prevent other incidents from occurring. Recently, speed limits for lorries over 7.5 tonnes were raised by 10 mph - a decision that has been criticised by safety groups.

Peter Box, transport spokesperson for the LGA, said that the group was being held back from acting.

“Local councils require tougher powers as soon as possible. At the moment, they are attempting to act with their hands tied behind them, while doing everything in their power.”
