Petition Action

Make it a specific criminal offence to assault a highway workers

Petition Details

Change the law to ensure highways workers are afforded the same level of protection against abuse as emergency workers

Additional Information

Rates of abuse from members of the public towards highways workers are alarmingly high. The subject is largely ignored and only by the stiffening of penalties can we really effect positive change
