Are you in Scotland?

If you know whether it is enforceable - and by whom, please tell me.
Expert:  Jo C. replied 6 months ago.

Well, it would be if it were placed there by the local council and they had the authority of a traffic management order comparable instrument in Scotland.

The other alternative is that it is placed there by the Department of Transport but then it would need the force of law that is relatively unlikely for localised restrictions.

Certainly they can be prohibitions upon HGVs for lots of reasons.

Can I clarify anything for you?
