Lift HGV parking ban in Kent so drivers can have their legally required breaks.
Revoke permission for Kent County Council to introduce new restrictions on HGV parking, which force drivers to choose between taking legally required breaks and rest, or risk a fine of a day's wage.
HGV drivers are required, by law, to take 45 minutes break after 4.5 hours driving and require parking in order to do this. They are also required, by law, to take minimum daily rest periods of at least 9 or 11 hours. Enforcement of the new restrictions from Kent Council and the Department for Transport is making this impossible.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
