During the past week I and others who had made comments on proposed introduction of a 7.5 t weight restriction on our high street received the email quoted below.
It is interesting to those of us that having understood the difference between a “weight restriction” and a “weight limit” that this decision refers to the latter. Thank you to all those who commented on the original proposal.
