Liberal Democrat John Leech introduced his Road Safety (No 3) Bill under the ten minute rule motion on 21 February 2012.
The bill makes a number of provisions including:
• requiring drivers to undertake an eye test when renewing a driving licence
• reducing the permitted blood alcohol level for drivers from 80mg per 100ml of blood to 50mg
• making the turning back of a vehicle mileometer except in specified circumstances a criminal offence
• promoting safe walking, cycling and use of public transport by children to and from school.
The Manchester Withington MP claimed the legislation would make streets safer by improving conditions for drivers, pedestrians and cyclists alike.
Mr Leech's bill was nodded through, but is unlikely to proceed further due to a lack of parliamentary time.
