'Virtual Fences' in the UK to Lessen Roadkill and Road Traffic Accidents

ProblemIn 2016-2017 it was reported that more than 3900 animals were killed on the roads in the United Kingdom (Confused.com, 2018). This is 3900 too many. Even more so when you take into account that this only the animals which are reported as roadkill. Have you ever reported roadkill which you've seen? No. Therefore, this number is likely to be much, much larger. Road signs such as, "Animals Crossing" are not effective- drivers simply ignore them. Speed bumps don't work either as they disrupt traffic and result in NIMBYist feelings. However, there is a solution, and it comes from Tasmania...SolutionIn Tasmania, on one stretch of road, there are 'virtual fences', which detect car movement, and animal movement, and when they correspond to one-another, lets out a high frequency sound and flashing lights- which is completely inaudible, and invisible to the driver. This results in the animal being "spooked", and not crossing the road, or it does cross, just when it is safe to do so.Too many people have crashed, or died, in their cars by trying to avoiding wildlife. This simple tool will help to reduce this. In Tasmania this device reduced roadkill by 50%- so fewer animals died, fewer cars were crashed, and fewer people died- a mutually beneficial device to prevent unnecessary deaths.#DontBeOnTheFence Please Share this petition in whatever way you can: Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Youtube, word of mouth, so that one day this will become commonplace in the UK.

Fox, et al., (2018), Roadkill mitigation: trialing virtual fence devices on the west coast of Tasmania, Australian Mammalogy, https://doi.org/10.1071/AM18012 Personal storyMy name is Sam, I am 20 years old, and am currently studying Geography at university. I wanted to set up this petition because when I saw this idea I thought that it should be utilised everywhere- not just hidden away in Tasmania. If it can reduce road traffic accidents, or roadkill even slightly then surely it would be a success?

Keep our children's centers open

It was reported by Nuneaton News this morning (15/06/2017) that reassessment of our children's centers will take place, with some facing closure. This would be a terrible mistake for Warwickshire County Council. Across the borough there are thousands of families that rely on services provided by these centers. There are also hundreds of parents of children with additional needs who use these centers as a lifeline. My son is 3 years old and is on the waiting list for ASD assessment. Its already been a long battle to get this far but the children's centers within the borough have been the first places I call should I need help or advice. My sons community peadiatrician, Speech & Language therapist and health visitor are all based at the childrens centers under threat. Where will we be taking our amazing kids for their appointments? There are stay n' play sessions held at these centers that are specifically for children with additional needs, support groups for parents and constant access to a range of friendly advice that our children need without fear of us being judged should a meltdown happen or if we have no one else to talk to and we're at our wits end as parents. These centers can not close. Our children can not loose anymore. They have already been through so much...and so have we! Surely it's better to invest in our children now so that they stand a better chance of giving back to society when they reach adulthood. The centers that are at AT RISK are; Bedworth Heath, Bulkington, Ladybrook, Park Lane, Rainbow, and Riversley children's centre.

Hi all i am from the westmidlands UK and im a mother  to a 5 year old sweet boy with complex learning difficulties, We need loads more funding and understanding for children with all different special needs. More time in mainstream schools & more teachers training on special needs kids! We need more special school opening and time spent on our children just like the rest do, im so saddened by this it breaks my heart to know our children are suffering how about in 5-10 years time the next generation of children are going to suffer immensly due to this something has to be done NOW. Nevermind trying to pass our children off as naughty or cant be bothered to teach them so they end up in limbo like a pru with no formal education again due to no special school placement for children with no formal diagnosis, i am a mother of a special 5 year old boy whos going through hell with himself trying to get him where he needs to be! Like many others we need extra funding in order for our children to get the education they all deserve. Its been going on too long now something needs to be done i want to get as many signatures as i can to forward to the SEN department and above goverment for there understanding that us as parents simply cant keep going through hell all at the mercy of endless paperwork. We need them to listen to us parents as we know what's best for OUR CHILDREN not them! We need more special schools opening and training as theres a big rise in new cases and nowhere to place our children, please help by signing lets get our childrens voices heard Thankyou

Prohibit in UK the practice of (Metzitza) Oral Suction Circumcision on 8 day old babies!

TOTAL BAN on the practice of Oral Suction Circumcision (Metzitza) Oral Suction Circumcision (Metzitza) is the ancient barbaric practice of, circumcising 8 day old babies with no anaesthetic and the orally sucking blood from the open wound in the penis. Unbelievably it is still legal in the UK! With all the work and money going into battling FGM, no one seems to raise a whimper in regard to the obvious "sick" factor. The concerns go much deeper  BROOKLYN, NY — The city's health department this week confirmed the first case in 2017 of a baby getting neonatal herpes following a controversial Jewish circumcision process. Metzitzah b'peh was performed on the baby, which is a ritual where a mohel, or trusted religious circumciser, uses his mouth to suck blood away from the circumcision wound on the infant's penis, the department said. The health department calls metzitzah b'peh "direct orogenital suction," or DOS, and said it can transmit herpes to newborn males.Since 2000, there have been 24 confirmed cases of herpes infection following DOS, according to the health department. Two of the 24 babies died, and at least two others suffered brain damage.In 2016, there were two confirmed herpes cases following DOS, and in 2015 there were three, according to the health department. This is the first confirmed case of herpes following DOS in 2017. The baby was put on an intravenous antiviral for 14 days. (Source: patch.com)
