Silent fireworks only to be sold over the counter

This petition had 516 supporters

There are very many who suffer from the extremely loud bangs of fireworks at private and residential parties. Pets suffer with many having to be sedated. But there are also people who suffer with conditions such as PTSD. Fireworks are fun but they are now so extreme that they should only be available for use at organised events which are advertised - thereby giving reasonable notice for those who need to prepare for such events. 

Fireworks are spectacular and little would be lost to have the extreme bang removed. I understand that silent fireworks have been successfully introduced elsewhere and I believe many would benefit in the UK.

Sufferers of PTSD and similar conditions along with many innocent animals would no longer need to distressed with the bomb-like explosions around them. Private firework parties are no longer limited to November 5th and New Years Eve so let’s see the introduction of silent only fireworks for the enjoyment of all. 

Thank you
