Paul Gyllenship started this petition to Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency

I would like to propose that non car derived commercial vehicles with a maximum gross weight limit of under 3.05 tonnes have the speed restrictions for single and dual carriageways removed and replaced to those of regular vehicles ie 30mph built up areas, 60mph for single carriageways and 70mpg for dual carriageways and motorways.

A large proportion of vehicles fall within this category, And with advances in vehicle safety technology there is little if any impact on the safety of our roads. This would also reduce the number of applications for vehicle registration document (vehicle type change) to the DVLA for changes to vehicle type (Commercial vehicle to camper van) Insurance companies will already accept the re-classification of a commercial vehicle as a camper van without changing the vehicle registration document. By making this small change to legislation this will clear up the confusion and state of limbo that a lot of vehicle drivers are in and ensure that there is better clarity for people who drive multiple different vehicle types

Thank you for taking the time to read my petition.
