Allow HGVs to travel at 50mph on single carriageway roads - 50 is the new 40!

The current 40mph speed limit for HGVs on single carriageway roads is seriously outdated and dangerous. Trucks are vastly safer than they were 50 years ago when the limit was set, and 40mph only encourages frustrated car drivers to attempt suicidal overtaking manoeuvres. The current legislation needs updating. Commercial Motor magazine believes 50 should be the new 40!
