Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Motorways Traffic (Scotland) Regulations 1995 (“the 1995 Regulations”) which regulate the use of motorways in Scotland.

Regulation 3 of the 1995 Regulations applies the Regulations to every special road which can only be used by traffic of Classes I and II specified in Schedule 3 to the Roads (Scotland) Act 1984, such roads being called “motorways” in the 1995 Regulations.

These Regulations amend the Schedule to the 1995 Regulations, the effect of which is to exempt from the application of the 1995 Regulations those special roads described in that Schedule, which otherwise would be classed as motorways and covered by the 1995 Regulations.
