TfL seeks greater knowledge
20 July 2007
London drivers are being urged to brush-up on the Highway Code in a new campaign by Transport for London. The summer marketing move dubbed 'Know the rules' is aimed at improving motorists' safety.
Campaign leaflets, roadside posters and press advertisements will remind people of the dos and don'ts of bus lanes, yellow box junctions, red routes, yellow lines and a number of other parking and traffic controls.
David Brown, director of TfL surface transport, said: "If drivers follow road and parking regulations correctly, there are benefits to all road users.
"We have seen real improvements on London's roads, for example, average bus speeds are going up and journey times are going down.
"This campaign is designed to remind London's drivers of the regulations and penalties which exist to keep traffic on the capital's roads moving safely and efficiently."
