Roadworks overnight close to homes should be banned due to the danger tired drivers cause.

What do I want?

All local authorities, private and pubic organisations to be banned from carrying out noisy roadworks between 11pm and 6am when the road is close to homes.

Why?

The roadworks mean that local residents are unable to sleep. Unlike the contractors carrying out these roadworks, local residents cannot go home to bed. They are forced to get up , take children to school, get themselves to work and to pay attention.

The reality is that research has established that a tired driver is equivalent to a drunk driver and none of us would be that irresponsible. Sadly our employers don't give us a month off when the hammers, drills and cutting machines are deployed in the dead of night with no notice or advice to residents.

This new policy in the last three years is endangering your life and mine. I alone cannot stop these works and get them carried out at a sensible time.

If enough people sign this petition the government will be forced to act as the Department of Health already admits the danger of sleep deprivation. The police are designing tests for tired drivers. Why should innocent people be prosecuted for matter over which we have no control? We acted responsibly but the court will not be prosecuting the local authority or train company that caused us to be sleep deprived. You and I will be in the dock.

Let's get this stopped before more lives are lost due to innocent but exhausted drivers please.

Thank you for your support.
