End the illegal racing on the A421 in Milton Keynes

This petition had 370 supporters

Every Sunday evening cars, ranging from half dozen to in excess of twenty, congregate at the Sneshall West industrial estate and proceed to race (cruise) up and down the A421 between the  'Bottledump' and 'Tattenhoe' roundabouts in Milton Keynes, cheered on by spectators parked on the roadside.

The participants show scant regard for road laws - racing one another amongst other traffic users in excess of speed limits and presenting significant danger to themselves and innocent road users. Aside from the obvious road dangers the residents of nearby estates including Tattenhoe have their Sunday evenings blighted by the noise.

Despite the problem persisting for years, the police response is reactionary - only seeking to end the event once the public has called 101 to report the problem. This is despite their awareness of the regular issue. Residents have had enough and demand something is done to permanently end the dangers of cruising and the impact of noise pollution.

We call upon our local Member of Parliament Iain Stewart to work with Thames Valley Police and Milton Keynes Council to find a long term solution, be it safety cameras, traffic calming, CCTV or a police presence.
