I'm not sure what you mean?
Yes, a person who has a licence and has the appropriate insurances and tax can drive on any public road in the UK.
That is not subject to closures and other restrictions.
Yes, that is right.
Or though Kent or Surrey or Scotland if he likes.
Human rights don't apply to this specific situation anyway.
No, I understand this area.
It is just not covered by the HRA. I obviously cannot say why our law makers drafted the law in this way.
Any driver in the UK can go elsewhere in the UK providing he has licence, tax, insurance and a roadworthy and MOTed car.
Delighted to continue with this but please rate my answer.
No, because that would be an invalid restriction so it would be enforceable.
A valid restriction would be something like a one way road that had proper backing from the council.
Councils cannot enforce restrictions that seek to prevent a motorist going where he is perfectly entitled to go.
1 Not sure what you mean?
2 No, please see above. A valid restriction is one that is firstly lawful as a restriction preventing people from other areas would not be and secondly voted onto the traffic management order by the council. They cannot interfere with the law decreed by Parliament which is that any driver in the UK can go elsewhere in the UK providing he has licence, tax, insurance and a roadworthy and MOTed car.
1 I'm still not sure what you mean?
2 I'm not going to be able to quote an act that says any motorist can go anywhere. It is a principle of law. Otherwise there would be no point in a motor vehicle or in paying tax or having insurance.
