Glass in Bus shelters

Postby dogwalker04 » Wed Oct 03, 2007 2:15 pm

Hi every1..

I started a petition up to try to get glass banned from bus shelters..

http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/BanGlassIn/

It is on the No 10 Downing Street website..
Here is what I wrote...

"Are you fed up of seeing bus shelters smashed? Do you think it is a waste of public money for these shelters to be fitted with glass? I hate seeing the glass on the floor, which is also a health hazard to children and animals. Vandals seem to target these so it's time to STOP putting glass in shelters. An excuse is its toughened glass and is not easy to break...the people who do smash them have all night to do it and not many people will stop them because they fear for their own safety."

I do hope I can get more people to sign this... the more the merrier lol.

But what do you propose to use in the bus shelter instead, if glass is made unacceptable?

Generally bus shelters, etc are NOT provided by the public purse - rather the bus companies using the routes

The ones in my village are paid for jointly by the parish & county councils.

We don't get any broken bus shelter glass in this nice part of Essex where I live so no need for any petition here......nor in Westminster or Chelsea I suspect.

Most of the villains live in and around Essex and so of course, they don't want that sort of loutish behaviour on their doorstep.
Almost everything I say is tinged with irony !

Open sided or a modern plastic glass replacement would do. Why they cant work it out for themselves beats me!

Would it be to cynical to suggest that the repairing contractors are in some way connected to the people who make the policy decisions..... or is that not PC enough for this site ? 8)
