How on earth is that going to be enforced? There are nowhere near enough Rozzers on the roads and it's too expensive to add scameras to every newly restricted road.

Our wee village has been done recently, and so have the surrounding villages. It's easy to forget, especially if you stop at a shop and start off again.
I saw it being enforced on a Sunday morning. So, I guess it works in conjunction with the lower blood alcohol limit.

Important to realise that the proposer of this bill is a member of a political non-entity.
Can't see it getting very far.

1.7 million wasted in Manchester... http://www.manchestereveningnews.co....opped-12706663

2.2 million spent in Edinburgh http://www.edinburghnews.scotsman.co...2-2m-1-3715653

I have yet to see any effect except more stationary traffic and the effects of higher illegal pollution levels within the city. If only they spent this money (and that wasted on the trams) fixing the roads to improve the flow of traffic instead. - Rant over.
