Modified ‘Loud’ Car exhusts

I believe there should be more restrictions and laws governing the use of modified car exhausts. We have many, many, laws governing noise nuisance by neighbour’s… sterio’s etc but we are now bombarded by loud car exhausts. They are attracting more and more attention now and the police are picking up on it too now. I believe the decibel rating is 82db but I don’t know if that is idling or running. The police are now stopping and checking the decibel rating and I would like this rolled out on a country wide scale.

I cannot understand the ethos behind these exhausts other than to attract attention to the driver of these vehicles. But those of us whom do enjoy our cars and our sleep of a night are annoyed by these ‘boy-racers’ whom create this anti-social noise. No one has come up with a suitable explanation as to why have them in the first place?? On a race track it’s fine but not on public roads. There should be legislation and a ban on them.

Anti-Social Behaviour – Diary Sheets

Abolish the need to keep formal ASB diary sheets for use as evidence against perpatrators.  E-Mails should be acceptable.  Firstly, it saves money (less paper and stamps). Secondly we have been completing diary sheets for 6 years now without anything much happening as a result to combat ASB in our neighbourhood wo what exeactly is the point of them?

Neither the Police nor any other organisations appears bothered when people have noisy parties etc at weekends, most authorities are shut and by the time you get to Monday the problem is over and you have had another sleepless weekend!

A call to the Police, Crimestoppers or any other involved organisation such as local authority or Housing provider should be cross-matchable and traceable.  We need a central point of contact and a database for noise abatement and/or Anti-Social Behaviours.  We need someone to contact every day of the week to help stop ASB, not jsut weekdays!

The Government should repeal the above mentioned Act since it is being used by people to criminalise others in disputes other than what the legislation was designed for. Local Authorities are also using the powers they an an unfair way forcing hedge oweners to remove hedges completely even though the Local Authorities are aware the legislation does not permit either the complete destruction of hedges and trees or their removal.

Remove the anti social behaviour act from control by social housing landlords

This Act brought into being by Jack Straw has been so often utilized by powerful and completely unaccountable social housing organisations against tenants towards whom they might bear a grudge or dislike, possibly for being outspoken against unjust treatment from the landlords, that it has become a weapon in their hands and, without regard for any crime having been committed by the tenant whatsoever they will mercilessly threaten the tenant and try to control them in every possible way with this bizarre Act..

Social Housing organisations are a law unto themselves with no respect for law and increasingly behave like the Nanny State extremis in every thing they say and do, interfering in every private domain of a tenant's life!! Putting an Asbo on a peace loving tenant with no addictions and no criminal record doesn't concern such tyrannical minds as those that exist within these particular housing organisations. Take the power out of their hands and please eliminate the much abused anti social behaviour Act!

Civilian Video Enforcement

First of all I'm not suggesting we remove or reduce the number of Police out on the Streets AT ALL. I would like to suggest that a system should be set in place to allow citizens who want to, to upload video evidence that they have captured themselves. With the advent of technology, most members of the public carry a phone with video capability or other means of recording video.

CCTV is a very effective law enforcement tool, from alerting officers to an incident in progress that can be dealt with, to providing rhetorical evidence of crimes. Unfortunately CCTV is very inefficient, constantly recording and monitoring, even when nothing is happening. Again, I am not suggesting that CCTV system sin place right now be removed, just supplemented.

CCTV is often used to impose fines on people, from littering and public order disturbances to motoring offences. I would suggest that some kind of reward system could be put in place in event of a successful fine being dealt out (say 10-15%)..

Boot camp

There is so much anti social behaviour, where the kids say they are bored! they are bored because they have everything.  All they seem to do is hang around in groups especially at night and causing damage, or making peoples life hell.  I think what is needed is that when a person reaches 18 yrs old does not have a job or collage and is signing on they should go to a boot camp, to show them how to respect people, and not use a swear word in every sentance, this will make them more responsible, and should be for 6-12 months at a time, because if they know something like this will happen, they may think twice if they decide to do something they should not, also it would save money on prisons, use the army to sort them out, and also get them to do community work, if they damage someone elses property, and also to pay for the damage, if they say they have no money, nearly all of them have mobile phones, computers, xbox and more, you say they sell that item to pay for the damage, again that would also make them think twice.

Also criminnal are treated really well, why is this, if someone is protecting there house, and someone breaks in then that person should be able to have the responsibility to guard their home, and not been taken to court because they attacked the burgular, this really needs changeing lots of people are not happy with this. so this really needs to be looked at, if someone breakes into your property you have a right to protect it and the family,  so be on the side of the person that has been attacked, rather then always on the criminnals side!!!

These people are no longer scared of the police and like going into prison as they can be educated, fed with no worries, by going to prison it must be horrible, so that they do not want to go back, and these so called goody goodies should keep out of this, it is because of them that we are in this state.   Also teachers should be given more power, at the moment the kids egg on the teachers saying go on hit me then I can contact my parents, caining needs to be brought back, together with dicipline (which no longer exsists).

This is important and must be looked at, we are a soft nation, we need to be more firm, especially on immigration amd people coming from europe, they get all the help, yet if you go to a europe country you get nothing.  This should be like canada and australia they can only work in the uk, if there is no one in the uk able to do the job,  britain is in a mess and many british people are getting very angry about this situation, where has england gone?

Lets get Britain back to british.    and finally the Jobcentres need to be sorted the way they treat customers, and not telling them what they are entitled to is absultly discusting, there is a discration fund of £300 for clothes for interviews, the jobcentre has been told NOT to say anything about this to the customer  (The DWP/JCP need to be more open) Mr.Purnell in April 2009 put an article in the paper regarding this.  JCP staff are not trained, do not know about customer service, they are a disastor.  When they make mistakes on benefits the customer has to suffer, I can give you many example of the stress that the JCP have caused to individuals, leading to suicide.  I could go one but something needs to be done.

Change licensing laws

I really think it is time the pub licensing laws were changed back to what they were before 24 hour opening times were introduced.  

My civil liberties are eroded as I am reluctant to go out in the evening to a theatre or cinema because of the number of people going to pubs and clubs who have already had too many drinks.
