Bei Carter was found stabbed to death in Bridlington on Friday

:04:22.:04:26.

Road safety experts in Lincolnshire are worried about a Governmdnt

:04:27.:04:36.

decision to raise the speed limit for big lorries.

:04:37.:04:38.

HGVs have been limited to 40 on single carriageway roads

:04:39.:04:40.

for 50 years, but it's been announced today that the limit will

:04:41.:04:43.

It can be frustrating for motorists stuck behind slow`moving lorries.

:04:44.:04:54.

Some even take risks to get on with their journey.

:04:55.:04:57.

At this cafe at Caneby Corner I met Gary, who

:04:58.:04:59.

I have been a lorry driver lyself for 30 years. Vehicles these

:05:00.:05:12.

I have been a lorry driver myself for 30 years. Vehicles thesd days

:05:13.:05:18.

The current speed limit on single carriageways

:05:19.:05:21.

for heavy goods vehicles ovdr 7 5 tonnes is 40 miles an hour.

:05:22.:05:24.

But that's being increased to 5 miles an hour from early next year.

:05:25.:05:27.

A change, which the governmdnt claims, could give hauliers

:05:28.:05:30.

But John Siddle from the Lincolnshire Road Safety

:05:31.:05:34.

Those lorries that are at their maximum permissible weight stopping

:05:35.:05:49.

distances involved at 50 mph are significantly different to 40 mph.

:05:50.:05:54.

That is a major concern. Surely this is good news for motorists who can

:05:55.:06:02.

get frustrated stuck behind a lorry. The majority of motorists are not

:06:03.:06:08.

restricted. But motorists I spoke to seemed pleased with the changes It

:06:09.:06:10.

seemed pleased with the changes. It is a good idea. There is not much

:06:11.:06:17.

chance of going more than 50 anyway. Still the Government believes

:06:18.:06:24.

letting lorries go faster whll We are concerned about this. It is a

:06:25.:06:41.

fundamental road safety law that when speeds go up, crashes go up. We

:06:42.:06:51.

take the points that reducing the speed differential between different

:06:52.:06:53.

vehicles is a good thing. But we vehicles is a good thing. But we

:06:54.:06:57.

would much rather the Government was doing this by bringing down the

:06:58.:07:01.

overall speeds. But lorry drivers are frustrated by the current speed

:07:02.:07:06.

limit and people are overtaking when they should not be. This will help

:07:07.:07:11.

that. This is a matter of where we need to be educating people that

:07:12.:07:17.

they need to not be frustrated. But many say that 40 is too slow and

:07:18.:07:19.

that the city bowl being frustrated that the city bowl being frtstrated

:07:20.:07:20.

and that is where the accidents and that is where the accidents

:07:21.:07:24.

happen. We need to think about other vulnerable road users. Cyclhsts

:07:25.:07:27.

happen. We need to think about other vulnerable road users. Cyclists and

:07:28.:07:28.

vulnerable road users. Cyclhsts and people walking. Having heavy

:07:29.:07:33.

vulnerable road users. Cyclists and people walking. Having heavx goods

:07:34.:07:35.

vehicles thundering past at 50 mph will not help that problem. But this

:07:36.:07:42.

is a guideline. They do not have to do it. Do you think they will use

:07:43.:07:46.

the opportunity to drive at 50 rather than 40? If you set our limit

:07:47.:07:50.

higher people will believe it is higher people will believe it is

:07:51.:07:52.

safe to drive at that speed. And in the last hour, it's been
