Sign our petition and help MCN save our roads!

The road network is Britain’s most valuable asset (Action For Roads report, DfT), yet we currently spend less that 1% of the asset value maintaining it. Britain’s roads are in a woeful condition, and they will get worse every year unless we act. Every year that the Government waits before acting adds yet more cost to fixing the problem. And meanwhile, we, as motorcyclists, are among the most likely to get hurt by hitting potholes. Here is what we believe should happen:

  1. 2p from the 57.95p that Government takes from every litre of fuel should go to preventative road maintenance. This guaranteed income of around £1billion would allow highways authorities to plan maintenance properly.  
  2. The Government’s Code of Practice for road maintenance should be rewritten for 21st century traffic conditions and budget constraints.
  3. All road authorities should have a competent Asset Management Plan, forcing them to think long term about road maintenance.

By signing the MCN Save Our Roads Petition you will send out a message to the Government that it can no longer ignore the danger to motorcyclists caused by potholes and deteriorating road surfaces. So please sign and ask your friends to sign too.
