My petition:

To create "Hot Seats" on tubes which are ONLY for pregnant women.

I would like the government and TFL to work together to create "Hot Seats" which are specifically designated for pregnant women only. These hot seats should stand out (in terms of colour) and should be dotted throughout train carriages and not just near entrance doors. 

Obviously, if there aren't pregnant women around then anyone can sit in these designated seats however once someone who is pregnant comes onto the tube then it should be a mandatory requirement for the seat to be offered and not optional.

Additionally, I would also like new "baby on board badges" to be issued. These badges should match (in colour) these "hot seats" on the tube.  I am fed up of seeing pregnant women standing when they are visibly pregnant and they have the "baby on board badge". I want women to be able to get onto any entrance of the tube and to be able to get a seat even if it is not near the "priority seats". I do not think our elderly and pregnant women should be the ones offering seats to each other.
