(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations further amend the Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986.
Regulation 36B requires certain goods vehicles to be fitted with speed limiters. Paragraph (14)(f) of that regulation as previously in force exempted a vehicle which was exempt from duty under section 7(1) of the 1971 Act. Section 7(1) was re-enacted as paragraph 21 of Schedule 2 to the Vehicle Excise and Registration Act 1994. Paragraph 21 is repealed by Part V of Schedule 29 to the Finance Act 1995 (c. 4).
These Regulations replace regulation 36B(14)(f) with a provision exempting a vehicle when it is used on a road in circumstances that are similar to those that attracted the exemption from duty under paragraph 21 of Schedule 2 to the Vehicle Excise and Registration Act 1994. The exemption relates to vehicles that are used on roads for distances not exceeding an aggregate of 6 miles a week.
1988 c. 52; section 41 was amended by the Road Traffic Act 1991 (c. 40), Schedule 4, paragraph 50 and Schedule 8.
S.I. 1986/1078; relevant amending instruments are S.I. 1993/3048 and 1994/329.
1994 c. 22. Paragraph 21 of Schedule 2 is repealed by Part V of Schedule 29 to the Finance Act 1995 (c. 4).
