Make safe dangerous Junction A6131 (Skipton North) crossing A65 (Harrogate)

This petition had 5,452 supporters

Following a recent fatality involving a young person on a notorious junction of the A6131 (Skipton North) crossing the A65 (Harrogate) and the very supportive reaction of the public, we wish to Petition the Highways Authorities to make this junction safe for everyone.  There have been numerous accidents over the years due to the misleading and unclear road markings and the three "give way" junctions which leave motorists confused and lead them to sometimes make impulsive/rash decisions whilst trying to enter/exit the junction.  This resulted in a 20 year old losing his life just a week ago whilst travelling along the main A65 towards Skipton.  Many signatures have been obtained so far and the general outpouring has been one firstly of sadness and secondly of a determination to avoid any future repetitions.
