I rise to present a petition on behalf of my constituents in Bradford South, of whom 288 have signed, although I know these issues are recognised right across Bradford and, indeed, the country. The petition reflects concerns across Bradford that the Government have stripped proper policing investment for tackling dangerous driving, speeding and other related offences.

The petition states:

Following is the full text of the petition:

[The petition of residents of the United Kingdom,

Declares that the issue of dangerous driving within the constituency of Bradford South must urgently be addressed; notes that speeding, thoughtless parking, anti-social vehicle use, and the reckless use of off-road vehicles are common issues; notes that that these are a threat to life and the quality of life of residents; and further that there must be a reallocation of funds to invest more in the policing of roads.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge the Government to police roads frequently and urgently introduce measures to reduce dangerous driving, speeding, thoughtless parking, anti-social vehicle use, and the reckless use of off-road vehicles in the constituency of Bradford South.

And the petitioners remain, etc.]
