    Will it make any difference?
    Probably not.

    Is the money or the will there to make it happen?
    Probably not.

    Is it a good idea?
    Quite possibly.

    See answer 1

    Repeat to end........................

    No. Primary legislation needed. Parliament too busy with other business which the majority support.

    The closing date for the petition is 18/1/13 so I guess nothing would happen for well in excess of 12 months at least - all signed up

    I know nothing of the complexities of such things, just pondering this issue....assuming the main issue is control of mis-use - that is what seems to be at the heart of this.

    Where the V5 body type states 'motor caravan', could this not be used to provide a clear classification so car parks etc can clearlly state an acceptable vehicle. The Police and licencing authorities would have a positive indication from this information.

    It would help with the arguement about parking on drives (when is a caravan not a caravan) and even give the people being hit by the LEZ something else to argue as an exempt group.

    Or am I sitting in a cloud watching pigs flying by....

    if not for any other reason that to hopefully see a debate being brought about on this and sort some of the complexities out!!

    BUT - are there enough Motorhomers in the UK to reach the required number for it to be debated?

    last estimate I saw was 120,000 registered motor caravans.. so very unlikely..

    as I recall the last e-petition was poorly supported.. there just isn't enough people interested.
