Breakdown recovery operators could be permitted to use red flashing lights to make them more visible on motorways. This follows a parliamentary debate led by Tracey Crouch, the Conservative MP for Chatham and Aylesford. Speaking in Westminster, Tracey Crouch referenced a roadside recovery worker, Steve Godbold, who was hit and killed by a lorry on the M25.

Steve’s partner Sam Cockerill has become a spokesperson for the Campaign for Safer Roadside Rescue and Recovery (CSRRR), a group lobbying for improved safety for roadside recovery operators.

Crouch is calling for a review of the Road Vehicles Lighting Regulations 1989, which prohibit roadside recovery vehicles from using red lights. Red lights encourage drivers to become more cautionary in their approach, says Crouch.

“As chair of the APPG, I have heard evidence from groups throughout the industry. Allowing recovery operators to use flashing red lights has widespread support. I hope the government will continue to listen to the industry throughout the process.”

“I know that there is a way to go yet in this fight, but to see the cogs of government beginning to move means a lot to me.”
