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.
