More details from petition creator

Thousands of drivers wait daily in gridlocked traffic behind Lingfields’ Pinch-Points in their cars, lorries, buses, horse boxes and coaches - engines ticking over and patience wearing thin causing bad driving like speeding through hand on horn to clear a path and near-misses causing braking, skidding and loud swearing. Empty pinch-points make drivers speed to get through before oncoming traffic. Priority is bewildering, unclear and too close to bends e.g. why slow down to get out of a village? Flood-water has been diverted and crosses the road. Surrey County Council did not let these well-known facts stop their plans, they can put pinch-points anywhere to enable new-builds. Their ‘blind-eyes’ attitude is costing us all several thousands of pounds in repairs every time they re-build the pinch-points, an enormous and endless expense to us as taxpayers. The pinch-points don't calm the traffic, were against police advice, are doing more harm than good and have caused the only accidents that have happened here. Changes are expected in September: demolish the pinch-points.
