Committee for Environment & Infrastructure - P.2017/54
The States are asked to decide:-
Whether they are of the opinion to approve the draft Projet de Loi entitled "The Road Traffic (Fees and Charges) (Guernsey) Law, 2017", and to authorise the Bailiff to present a most humble petition to Her Majesty praying for Her Royal Sanction thereto.
This proposition has been submitted to Her Majesty's Procureur for advice on any legal or constitutional implications in accordance with Rule 4(1) of the Rules of Procedure of the States of Deliberation and their Committees.
The Law makes provision enabling the charging of fees for various road traffic permits and licences. Section 2 amends the enabling powers in the Public Transport (Guernsey) Law 1984 so as to allow charges to be made for an application for a licence under the Public Transport Ordinance 1986 whether or not the application is successful.
Section 3 enables the States, by regulations, to make provision for the charging of fees for applications for permits under three Ordinances relating respectively to (a) the use of a flashing light on a vehicle notwithstanding the general prohibition, (b) the driving of a vehicle in a prohibited or one-way street and (c) the use of a vehicle which would otherwise be in contravention of the Construction and Use requirements as to maximum width, length or weight.
