The Vision section about ability to read number plates in good daylight expresses the reading distance in metres only. The next section expresses height in metres followed by feet and inches in brackets. The Speed Limits table shows speed limits for buses, coaches and minibuses not exceeding 12 metres in overall length.
Again, no imperial conversion is given. Also, only metres are used for vehicle and overhang lengths in Vehicle Markings section page However, the DfT does not allow any metric-only vehicle length dimension sign unless it is accompanied by an imperial vehicle length dimension sign. However, the DfT allows imperial-only vehicle dimension signs with no metric equivalent.
The section on Typical Stopping Distances uses metres and feet. This is also the only section in the booklet that also gives conversions in car lengths based on a notional average car length of 4 metres. No imperial conversion is given there. All short distances in the booklet are given in metres, feet or both.
However, neither of these measurement units are authorised on distance signs, which must be expressed in yards, miles and fractions or a mile. However, the DfT does not allow metric vehicle height signs without an imperial one alongside them but allows imperial vehicle height signs to appear alone. They also allow dual height signs. The overhead electric cable warning sign shown on page is in feet and inches only. The measurement anomalies in the latest edition of The Official Highway Code remain.
Clearly, there is a lack of joined-up thinking at the DfT on measurement units. Apparently, when it comes to measurement usage, confusion reigns at the DfT.
The Highway Code makes it clear that readers and hence road users MUST have to know both imperial and metric measures. In which case, why bother with imperial? It is redundant, as well as potentially confusing to have to read two sets of measurements in one section, imperial-only in another, metric-only somewhere else - and for what purpose? Time to get rid of the imperial for good.
Interestingly, when Canada and Australia converted their roads to metric units, few people back then had been educated in school on the metric system, yet we all coped, and coped very easily and well. Today in the UK, people have been educated in metric units for 40 years, the HC assumes they know metric, and so conversion should be a doddle. So what's holding us back?
A rhetorical question I know. Daniel I don't think metric signs are illegal as the www. Readers may like to see my post word limited to the your letters page of a local south east England newspaper -. On the spot fines, paid of course with metric money need to be collected at the roadside or ports before they leave the country. I have to say the above short letter has yet to be published.
There appears to be a reluctance by the mainstream press to publish pro metric articles or metric information. It seems more the case that all the relevant laws state that, as far as roads are concerned anyway, only signs in TSRGD can be used unless an exception is sought from the relevant minister; where metric-only signs appear in that it is usually with a disclaimer that states that it may only be used in conjunction with an identical sign with imperial units.
It is a pity that this booklet was published when a new version of the TSRGD Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions was awaiting publication as many of the illustrations refer to version of the TSRGD maximum lengths of vehicles in feet only, the use of "T" for tonnes and many other points that Ronnie has pointed out. For the record, the TSRGD is a statutory instrument which will be "laid upon the table" in Parliament for a specified period.
If no-one forces a debate, it will become law without debate. Daniel says: Probably not. I presume this is not new, and would suggest that metric speed limit signs on roads in UK are de-facto, not illegal! Now we have also metric height, width and length signs on public UK roads.
Some or many? As of Oct the UK rail network started metric conversion http: So, far from metric being illegal "in public view", or whatever, it is very much a de-facto practice.
Laws of England as I understand them, are mostly based on what is considered normal and reasonable by a jury of 13 individuals. This leaves me totally perplexed as to how ARM can ever claim them to be illegal, even more how they can claim this to have been legally proven, and how DfT can claim that metric signs are not permitted.
AIUI, the regulations say what the units for each individual road sign type must be, and not what they must not be. For most signs where units are involved, the units are required to be specific imperial units only. The older the vehicle, the less stringent the safety checks, which obviously includes emissions.
So what else is new in the UK? I experienced the same when I was handling 'grey' imports from Japan. Over 10 years old and only the MOT applied.
Under 10 years and an enhanced and more expensive test applied. So I had to get the speedometer re-calibrated to mph.
Even though you didn't answer my question as I asked it with a word for word stating of the supposed law, you did make it clear that metric units are in no way illegal on signs. A law that states "must be" does not in any way exclude other units. If it didn't meant to include other units then it would have to include the word "only" as in "must only be". Without the word "only" it can be interpreted that dual signs are perfectly legal.
The signs must show at least imperial but can show metric as options. Even though imperial is required it doesn't mean that if metric is included that imperial has to be the primary units. Thanks for clearing this up. The UKMA can now campaign to have metric added to all measurement signs.
At least here in the USA we know that metric road signs are legal. And in southern Arizona most folks there apparently want to keep it that way! You misunderstand the way the regulations work.
There is no single "law" applying to all signs in general, stating what the units must, or must not be. What there is is a specification for each and every individual sign giving the form and design and stating what the units must be. For dual measurement signs the specification explicitly states how they must be portrayed and what secondary unit is allowed or mandated. If a sign does not comply exactly with its specification eg if it has units or even unit symols that are not explicitly allowed then the sign is illegal.
I wish having our road distance and speed signs converted to kilo- metres were as easy as just adding metric to signs. The change is long overdue and I'm beginning to despair that I will not live long enough to see it happen — and I'm only 41 years old!
Unfortunately, Charlie P is right. The law is prescriptive, not permissive. The current Statutory Instrument is about pages long and there are too many instances to quote every part where imperial units are mandated.
By way of example, though, from Schedule Except that all of the miles to the nearest mile are measured to a rounded metric distance and just an approximated conversion of an actually measured rounded metric value appears. Yards are really exact metres. Learn more. Institutions Store Log in Sign up. Don't have an account? Sign up. Already have an account? Log in. You have no items in your shopping cart.
