The old speed limits... you will see a deliver van with kerb weight of under 3 tonnes is the same speed limit as a car under 30 hundredweight.
Dual purpose vehicles still exempted.... And This older law has different specifications of what a car is... as in modern law, a CAR deffinately can be for carrying passengers OR a load.. so can be a van. under 3 tonnes unlaiden construction and 12 meters length especially when insured as a muilti-purpose vehicle
30 hundredweight. was about 1.5 tonnes... look.... it used to have 50mph speed limit *all vehicles.
which was the SAME speed limit as vehicles unliden weight under 3 tonnes.
the missing link between man & monkey............................................................................ draw connecting line....

To drive a vehicle you need a Driving licence, Road tax and Insurance.
If you drive a goods delivery vehicle insured only for buisness use.. you are not insured to enjoy the pleasure of driving that vehicle even for the job. Or use it for your own uses while working..
But if it IS insured for such purposes, you most certainly can have the pleasure of driving that vehicle for both work and pleasure at the same time, and also do personal things and travel in it, either at a different time or simultaneously.. because it is insured for multi-purposes.
I need to try find if there is anything in this other legislation on multi purpose vehicles... As, i think currently HM Government is trying to pass off a "Vehicle under 12 hundred weight" as only a van which is multi purpose.... but as you see in the older legislation... vehicles under 12 hundred weight, and also "Goods vehcles" are not not treated the same anyway... as the hundred weight does not in any way dictate if the vehicle is multi purpose or not.
And if we go look at the legislation.. a car most deffinately is any vehicle that is under 3.05 tonnes construction and can in fact carry a load. (or passengers) or both. And is under 12 meters long.
Also... I think the police are forgetting other factors... like certain engineering vehicles even if they are a van have different restrictions.
You cannot drive a vehicle if its not taxed or insured... so speed limits dont even matter as you have more offences...
So Tax & insurance matter a lot to what you can & cannot do in a vehicle and with it... So, if you are insured for multi-purposes... work, domestic & pleasure... then there is no doubt that its multi-purpose. they might try to say you were only using it for one purpose at the time... but once insured for multi -purposes (and a van deffinitely is adapted & capable of multi-purpose use.... then its lawfully catergorized as a multi-purpose vehicle and its within the weight & length requirements... so its pretty much 100% certain..
Unless i can find something other than HM government rubbish on MPvs (which are light vans under 12 hundred weight??? i think not) 1.5tonne? then i think that this is really a silly argument. I will try to find more on this in the older legislation.

What is this crap all about?? as ive said before.. why are they spending money on police and speed cameras and not on clerks and secretarys to make certain the legislation websites are all up to date so we are clarified on the law, so we know what it is..?
Its like they are trying to keep one step ahead and us in the dark so we cannot have the knowledge at any specific time.. god knows what they are meddling with in the mean time...
I dont like this at all.. we cannot even have a say and vote them out and stop them spending our money on their smart motorway propaganda radio adverts.
Are they changing the law on the associated parts that tells you "what a car is" as well and its weight??
Why does the Governments advise page on "Dual purpose vehicles" direct you to Schedule 6. when schedule 6, is a list of the restrictions that apply to certain vehicles, it is NOT a definition of what the vehicle specifications or descriptions ARE, which is actually in 185 of the Road Traffic act 1988. Which is in fact the same info as in the schedule 6, but it is where the schedule 6 gets its figures from... which previously and currently are NOT the same as those claimed on the Governments advice page for dual purpose vehicles, which directs you to scedule 6 which claims not to be updated.. and all published books, law and other documents people need to work from... are the only law we have, if the Government has not updated its website.. then what are we supposed to read?
Which is why i am now contacting the Highways agency for the updated legislation, if there even is any updated legislation to 185 and schedule 6.
Because so far the numbers dont match.. and If schedule 6 is where the Government dual purpose vehicle page directs you to that is supposed to have the most accurate information... Then i doubt there is any other legislation that covers the same vehicle specifications which is different.
1688 Bill of Rights - The right to Petition - It is the Right of the Subjects to petition the Queen & all Commitments & Prosecutions for doing so are illegal.
