Safety and the objective of Smart Motorways would be achieved by making Lane 1 a limited speed lane – eg 20mph – with camera speed checks in force permanently. So in normal running, Lane 1 would not be used. Only when traffic congestion builds up will drivers want to use Lane 1 because its slow speed will not then be a disincentive.
