8. Main Content
The Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions prescribe the traffic signs (which for the purposes of this legislation include traffic signals and road markings) for use on public highways in Great Britain. The notified draft is a complete revision to the Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2002 (as amended) that will:
a. Permit certain new traffic signs, signals and road markings to be used by local highway authorities;
b. Relax some current requirements on placing of signs.
c. Remove illumination requirements for some signing.
d. Update references to British and European standards, including the incorporation of a mutual recognition clause.

9. Brief Statement of Grounds
A complete review of UK traffic signing policy has been undertaken in recent years. The review concluded that national regulation is necessary to ensure a consistent traffic signing system across Great Britain, but that the current TSRGD needed a complete revision to ensure it provides a regulatory framework that reflects both current and future requirements. The notified draft reflects the conclusions of this review.
