The Weekly Roundup

Britain’s road signs could be replaced by warnings used in France and Germany as part of a plan to develop new technology to cut deaths on roads in Europe. The changes have been proposed to the European Commission and could also involve introducing standard road markings, which campaigners fear could cost taxpayers millions.

In other news, proposed changes to the MOT test could see the end of diesel emissions tailpipe testing altogether. According to the Clean Air in London group, some EU governments, including the UK, want to replace emissions testing with diagnostic checks.
