Not something everyone will agree with and don't want to start the actual debate HERE. It's something I DO believe in (although I didn't start the petition).

But would appreciate it those that DO support the idea to surf over to https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/128190 and sign the online petition to get enough signatures to have Parliament debate the issue.

It's been live for a few days and already approaching the absolute minimum requirement but would love this to get to 100,000 sigs and encourage a debate.

It takes all of a minute to do. And once done, if you could share via your social media outlets, it will help.

Thanks in advance.

    Done.
  • I see that Birmingham police are running a campaign to highlight this issue to motorists. Interesting that they feel this is an issue, but the Government does not. We should highlight this petition more.

    Have written to my local police force about this, to find out about their policy re dangerously close passing.. no response, so wrote to the police and crime commissioner.. so far no response :|
    All lies and jest..still a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest....
