Ban tractors on the A17

There are a considerable number of very slow moving tractors on the A17, particularly around the Kings Lynn area. These cause considerable tail backs in both directions. I seek to petition tractors and other agricultural vehicles being banned, or severely resticted, on the A17. With a bit more thought they could use the minor roads instead of creating traffic jams on a major 60mph A-road. Also, could we include caravans as well?

This e-petition has been rejected with the following reason given:

E-petitions cannot be used to request action on issues that are outside the responsibility of the government. This includes:

  • party political material
  • commercial endorsements including the promotion of any product, service or publication
  • issues that are dealt with by devolved bodies, eg The Scottish Parliament
  • correspondence on personal issues

E-petitions cannot be used for freedom of information requests.

The following explanatory notes have been added:

The A17 is a local authority road, and the issue should be raised with them.
