Description

Since it was first published in 1993, this book has been extremely popular as a clear, straightforward reference to the law of highways.Michael Orlik has now revised the text to a third edition to take full account of recent legislation, in particular the Traffic Management Act 2004, the Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act 2005 and the Natural Environment and Rural Communities Act 2006.The change in the law on winter maintenance is covered and the recent cases on the important distinctions between the duties and the powers of the Highway Authority - on pavement tripping, on the procedures for making Traffic Orders and on definitive Map Modification Orders - are discussed. Material has also been included on decisions in highway cases where the Human Rights Act 1998 has had an impact, and on ascertaining highway widths and 'ransom strip' problems.The basic structure of the book has been retained; the objective is still to provide full coverage of the law on highways 'from cradle to grave' in as straightforward a manner as possible without being either over-simplistic or too complicated. As such, it is an invaluable work for lawyers in both the public and private sectors and for highway engineers charged with the maintenance of the country's road network, as well as for police officers, magistrates, insurers and loss adjusters.
