Fireworks are great fun and people love them! However, not everyone does and there is nothing more stressful than having frightened pets, restless children or personal fear being heightened for hours on end. This is often the case around October, November and December. It seems that as soon as fireworks go on sale to the public, they start and do not stop for months.

Upon researching the much requested BAN on public sales, it is apparent that this isn't going to happen as it has been tried in parliament before. There is no intention of banning public sales and selling only to organised displays. From what I have read, this is not going to change. 

However, the law does need to change to give everyone a fair chance to enjoy them, or know when the problem period will be.

I am proposing that instead of a full BAN of firework sales to the public, a more specific law on what dates and times they can be used. At present these times are aligning  with only the noise pollution laws. But if we had set times and dates, we would be better prepared for them and even be able to put personal measures in place to accommodate the chaos that they cause to some. 

Please sign this petition to see if we can spark a movement for more controlled laws surrounding fireworks. If you could also please take a moment to share it, we could reach more people quicker.

 

Thank you for taking the time to read my opinion.
