The petition is a typical knee-jerk reaction. How, practically five-minutes after the accident, does the originator of the petition know that speed is a factor? Where they there or are they making an assumption based upon the tittle-tattle of contributors from Facebook?

If you don't like the marshals attitude then why not give up some time to do their role properly!!! ...
I get a bit fed up when kids are blamed for everything. Most young people are at home in bed a those times. Having lived in the town centre for some years I can speak from first hand knowledge that the vast majority of drunks out late at night are in their early 20's
