Government seeks feedback in ‘Red Tape Challenge’

15.19 | 6 June 2011 |

As part of its ‘Red Tape Challenge’, the Government is seeking feedback and advice on the potential outcome of cutting the regulations on road safety and cycling.

The regulations under review cover road rules, speed limits and those which aim to protect the safety of road users, such as the wearing of motorcycle helmets and seat belts.

The Government’s red tape challenge is part of its ambition to leave office having reduced the overall burden of regulation. The intention is to encourage greater personal responsibility among individual members of society.

The challenge is looking to answer questions including:

  • Should the regulations be scrapped altogether?
  • Can they be merged with existing regulations?
  • Can we simplify them – or reduce the bureaucracy associated with them?
  • Have you got any ideas to make these regulations better?
  • Do you think they should be left as they are?
