The petition lobbies Bucks County Council to think seriously about roads management.

Organiser Kevin Cox said: “If you are a resident of Aylesbury, I’m sure you will know the pain that we all feel on the daily basis when the entire town grinds to a halt between 07.30am and 09.30am, and then frequently again in the evenings. As soon as a very minor incident such as a broken down car occurs on any of the roads into or out of Aylesbury, the rest of the town feels the knock-on effect almost instantly and nobody is going anywhere.

“I believe it’s about time the council took a serious look at the issues within the town. It is not only proving a huge inconvenience for people living in Aylesbury, but is also harming the local economy with the traffic problems putting businesses off of moving into or investing in the town.”
