Safer Driving

remove heavy goods vehicles from roads to rail

drivers of light vehicles: cars, motor bikes and cycles dont stand much chance in a collision with a heavy goods vehicle.

A special category of vehicle based on weight could be awarded a permit to travel on special roadways, perhaps similar to bridle ways. At present cycling on existing roads is too dangerous. Its also sensible to avoid buying a lighter vehicle that would have little protection in an accident with a goods vehicle.

Railways could made into roadways, in countries where space is at a premium and be devoted to heavy goods traffic.

       I thought it was local and express on the Turnpike, with most trucks in the express lanes as they're generally on longer hauls.
