Britain is noxious for motorhomers.

Modern motorhomes are expensive and self-contained units usually owned by retirees with disposable income. They are not inhabited by itinerant poor gypsies looking to steal, beg or otherwise commit anti-social acts.

Travelling around Europe there is generally a welcome to be found. Motorhomers spend money in local businesses and for the most part maintain high standards of environmental respect.

This is not the case in the UK. Civil liberties for motorhomers in the UK are the lowest in Europe. There is general mistrust and a feeling that they are not wanted.

UK highway parking infrastructures are also almost the worst in Europe. There is a dearth of stopovers See the lorries parked up for a rest immediately adjacent to the highway with other lorries shaking them as they roar past a few inches away at high speed.

See motorway services politely informing the customers of their for the most part sordid and overpriced facilities that if they park for over 2 hours a 60 pound charge will be levied.

See the lack of overnight-allowed parking facilities in towns where the car parks are empty from 5 pm until 9 am – precisely the times motorhomers would like to use them.

Modern motorhomes are self-contained. They have their own waste carrying facilities and have virtually no negative environmental impact.

I'm afraid that my idea of a motorhome holiday is to head for Dover and breath a sigh of relief as I land in France and feel that my presence will not be resented/break the law.

Yet I would love to explore my own country and spend my hard earned savings in British pubs, restaurants and shops. 

But I feel a foreigner in Britain. So I will continue heading for Dover.

Please change the law to make appropriate parking by motorhomes feasible and possible in this otherwise green and pleasant land.

All Way Stop At Road Junctions

The average cost of installing traffic lights at a junction is over £100,000.  Why don’t we allow the installation of all way stops as they do in the USA.  A couple of pots of paint and a few signs and it works like a dream.

Stop Painting Roads

There are too many regulations governing the marking of roads.  Every different road use needs a different marking and each needs a sign to tell us what it means – and these markings and signs are too frequent, and cost a huge amount to implement.

Motorists speeding

We all agree: speeding can kill! Those of us who have speeded and taken the course are now watching the speedometer so carefully that we take our eyes off the road for far too many moments.

Like seatbelts (which saved the NHS money), why doesn't the government compel the car industry to supply cruise control as STANDARD. This will put drivers' attention back where it belongs – on the road – and saves lives in turn. With cruise control operating, one would need to make a conscious decision to turn it off.

Don’t Fine Speeders – Impound their Cars !

So how much does a  speeding fine really affect the offender? In many cases not very much. It causes them little inconvenience other than having to pay the fine and is soon forgotten.

If the offenders had their vehicle impounded for a week, or longer, depending on by how much they had exceeded the speed limit,  the inconvenience of having to make alternative transport arrangments  for a period would hit home much harder than simply paying a fine. Penalty points could still be issued and there would  of course have to be a set  charge to have the impounded vehicle released, this would cover the running costs of the compound.

This would create a different attitude to speed limits and would also ensure that at any given time there would be a significant number of vehicles off the road.

Licence Plates should show home location

The computerised system of licence plates is the wort I have come across. If I witnessed an accident and the car drove off I would be hard pushed to remember the complicated licence number. If the first letters of the plate showed a letter designating a town or city at least one would be able to report that the car came from Manchester  or Leeds for example. The main cities could have one letter for the city followed by a hyphen and other designating letters and numbers. 

The most important factor would be the recognisable first letter or letters designating the location.

Cars & The Ozone

Too many cars on the road. When are we going to stop making them, and killing ourselves

No matter whether they stop all the flights etc its probably still to late BUT……..

Get communities to organise       car sharing     more public transport

pedestrianise all town centres – only accessible with public transport

gigantic car parks in outer areas for them who still want to use their car 0 but a good charge for parking

The offence of the registered keeper not disclosing who was driving a vehicle at a particular time should be abolished. I think that this is a strict liability offence

Penalty for no insurance

Currently the fine and points for no insurance are imposed by a courts evaluation of the offence and usually amounts to less than a years insurance cost.

So, why not impose a mandatory 10x the middle qote from the 3 cheapest qoutes for that vehicle on a car quote site that are frequently advertising on TV.

This would make people who do not insure their vehicles think about it mor and if there are 3 million uninsured drivers out there, then think of the revenue that would raise. If they cant pay the seize the car and auction them off if they have value to pay the fine.

Scrap VED and introduce a dual MOT & insurance disc

Vehicle Excise Duty, like many taxes, is disproportionately costly to administer and collect.

Many have already said as much on this site. I wish to tie three popular threads together here.

VED should be scrapped and (if necessary) the lost revenue compensated by additional fuel duty.

The disc in our car windscreen should remain, and should only be issued by an insurance company on an annual basis, once they receive an MOT receipt and are satisfied themselves that it is from a genuine company.

This could additionally have a barcode on the disc that any parking enforcement officer can scan with their handheld device to ascertain whether the disc and the car are married on the DVLA data base. This would also give them an audit trail when issuing tickets.

Revenue raised from speed cameras and parking fines

Direct all revenue raised from speed cameras and parking fines to the National Trust.

(Insert your favoured organistion if you think stately homes / castles dont need our attention)

My idea stands whether you say 'Help for Heroes' or 'Sport England' etc.

We could indeed split the revenue between 20 organisations, such is the magnitude of the sums involved!

Right to retreads

Fleet car owners often lease. I don't know why but they do. Leasers impose conditions about how the car can be returned, and I read a set today from Mercedez Finance saying that retread tyres are not "acceptable". Return a car with retreads and they charge you for a new set of tyres.

This should be made unenforceable, if it is enforcable now.

Make uninsured drivers pay.

Uninsured drivers cost us all a lot of money on our insurance premiums and, if one of them hits us, we lose our NCD and our excess isn't covered even if the crash wasn't your faul. I'm not sure if it is entirely fair to penalise the law abiding majority to pay for the law breaking minority.

 

I believe that if someone chooses to drive without insurance and then has a crash, they personally are liable for all the resultant costs and they should only recieve help from the Motor Insurer's Bureau once their esate is valued at £0.

Don’t like the smoking ban? You know where the door is.

Other countries have much more freedom than Britain.

Clearly the government intends to ignore ideas submitted to this site.

So why not offer bursaries so that people can move abroad to enjoy more freedom:

1. Freedom to smoke: other European countries are much more relaxed about smoking.

2. Freedom to breathe: traffic pollution is much less severe in Europe and they allow smoking rooms so you can choose which smoke you want to be exposed to.

3. Freedom from tax: Britain now has the highest overall burden of tax in the western world.

4. Freedom to work: mass immigration and offshoring of jobs are much less prevalent in other countries.

5. Freedom to study: most other European countries offer student grants and waive tuition fees for poorer students.

6. Freedom to recover: Britain has some of the worst figures in Europe for recovery from cancer and other serious diseases.

7. Freedom to personal space: Britain is now the most densely populated country in Europe (supermarkets estimate, from the sale of staple items like bread and milk, that the population of Britain is around 95 million)

8. Freedom to own a home: it's almost impossible to enter the property market in Britain.

9. Freedom of movement: British people must now sign the e-borders register to take a holiday.

10. Freedom of assembly: in Britain is it illegal to dance to repetitive music, play live music unlicensed at a village fete and hold a political protest without permission from the police.

11. Freedom from noise: despite the previous point Britain offers no protection against neighbourhood noise unlike most other European countries.

12. Freedom from violence: Britain has the highest violent crime figures in Europe and most people are afraid to walk around their own communities after dark.

13. Freedom of the Internet: only Britain, China and North Korea will block Websites and imprison people whom contradict the will of the digital oligarchs.

14. Freedom to have a stake: in America one third of the population has two thirds of the wealth. However in Britain, comparable to a tin-pot dictatorship, just 5% of the population has 95% of the wealth.

I could go on but you get the picture.

Fixed price Car Insurance as incentive for Teenagers

High School Children should be able to 'earn' reasonably priced basic car Insurance by being law abiding up to age 18. They may, say, earn by dint of thier good behavior, a couple of driving lessons a year if they succeed in gaining a 'clean sheet' that year. The lessons can be redeemed as a reward when the child gains thier learners licence.

If a young person keeps a completely clean record up to age 18 they would be entitled to basic third party Car Insurance (for a low power vehicle) at a reasonable fixed cost – say £500pa.

The Insurance would be cancelled immediately for any driving infringement (ie speeding).

I believe this could save insurers many millions in the long term as there wouldn't be as much call on the uninsured driver fund.

Mark All Bridge Heights in Metres

Make it a legal requirement for all bridges to be marked in Metres….contentious I know and I speak as an arch-Eurosceptic. Currently some bridges are marked in feet and inches, others in metres and some in both. There is no consistency. The result is bridge strikes.

It should alos be a requirement for a driver to know his vehicle height IN METRES

Alternatively it could be made a legal requirement for all bridges to be marked in both imperial and metric

Switch off Motorway Lighting in Summer Months

The M1, M62, M6, M25 and no doubt many other motorways are lit, pretty much, from one end to the other.

The cost of running these lights must be horrendous, yet in the summertime we could pretty much do without them, saving both the money spent powering them for little real gain and the cost of the lamps, which would need replacing less often. Alternatively we could suppress every other lamp during the summer, thus cutting the costs by half.

Put Traffic Lights on flashing amber at night

Between the hours of 7pm and 7am, traffic lights should be switched to a flashing amber condidtion. This means that if it is clear then you may proceed. This system operates and works perfectly well everywhere else in Europe.

No Licence Vehicles

Introduce vehicles where no driving licence is required to run them.

Across Europe several categories of speed limited micro cars and small sizedengine scooters are driven by people without a licence. These vehicles allow access to th roads for the young, the elderly and those who only want motors for very short distance driving. They are limited to 45kmph (just under 30mph) and usually have weight and power limits.

 

This would take young people out of high speed deathtraps which they can use immediately they pass the test and also tends to push up the age at which young people take their driving test.

 

It would also introduce an incentive for people to drive eco friendly low power cars around town. and it would create a new economic market in the uk for sale service and repair of these vehicles. One scheme in france rents low power scooters to the young for only 20 euros a month to allow them to easily and cheaply get to college/work.

 

We should have no licence motoring in this country to give us someof the freedoms of the EU that would offset all the additional regulation brought in.

Legalising Cannabis….No!..Not yet without further study of its effects whilst driving.

I agree the draconian laws that this country has concerning Cannabis legalisation must change for the better and not make criminals out of ordinary people.I believe people should have the right to decide for themselves whether they use Cannabis or not ,and not be told you can't by people who ignore their own panel of experts who express opinions that Cannabis should be legalised in some way.

Please Please Please Mr Clegg,dont do it yet!.My son of 14 who was waiting on the kerb to cross the road was killed 2 years ago by a driver speeding whilst under the influence of cannabis,impaired to such an extent that the police doctor called to assess him after the "accident",and i use that word lightly,decided that he was unfit to be interviewed until the following morning.

In court the charge of driving whilst under the influence of drugs was dropped as the defence lawyer argued that as no limits are in force,as there are with driving with alcohol, concerning driving whilst unfit through the use of cannabis.Subsequently the scumbag who killed my son was sentenced to serve a prison sentence of 17 months.

Dont bow to pressure and legalise cannabis without proper research into its effects whilst driving and BEFORE YOU DO,PLEASE GIVE THE POLICE THE EQUIPMENT TO TEST THE DRIVER AT THE ROADSIDE ,to make a judgement as to whether the driver is unfit to drive if using drugs.

Why is this idea important?

I agree the draconian laws that this country has concerning Cannabis legalisation must change for the better and not make criminals out of ordinary people.I believe people should have the right to decide for themselves whether they use Cannabis or not ,and not be told you can't by people who ignore their own panel of experts who express opinions that Cannabis should be legalised in some way.
