I am writing this article to ask for your help. In the very
near future, I am launching a campaign against dangerous
driving. Dangerous driving costs lives. Too many lives,
many of them young have been taken as a result of somebody
driving dangerously and irresponsibly. I intend to operate
this campaign in the following ways, with four key objectives:
To collect a huge petition demanding a change in the law
that allows a person who has been arrested on suspicion
of causing death or injury by dangerous driving to continue
to drive until formally charged
To collect a petition in favour of one of two options, being
a) raising the age limit for driving to 21 years or b) limiting
the engine capacity of cars driven by those under 21 years
To urge anybody who witnesses an act of dangerous driving
to report the incident to the police, giving as much information
To appeal to everybody but in particular young people to:
a) refuse to be badgered into a road race, b) politely refuse
a lift from anybody they deem likely to drive in a dangerous
manner, informing the driver of the reason for refusal.
I need your help for the time being:.
you know of anywhere i.e. work, office, shops etc. that
petitions for signing may be left, please email
me at email@example.com
and I will send some forms to you. Please advise of how
many forms of 50 signatures per side you estimate will be
intend to approach the County Council on the subject of
speed restriction devices. If you know of anywhere they
might be effective, please send me your ideas.
have been too many fatal road traffic collisions in this
area in recent weeks. However, this is not going to be just
a local campaign. Dangerous driving is an issue in many
parts of the country, therefore any help you can give will
you for taking the time to read this article.
Please note that it will take me a little time to collate
all the information I need for this campaign in order to
operate it to its fullest potential and to achieve its goal
- to try to save a few lives.
