Petition Make it illegal to harass a learner driver who is on a lesson.
It is becoming more and more dangerous for driving instructors to teach learners on UK roads as we are continually harassed by other, so called "qualified" drivers. We are cut up, sworn at, threatened and verbally abused every day. This should be treated as a "hate crime".
I have been overtaken on many occasions while approaching a pedestrian crossing or road junction in a dangerous manner. Sooner or late, (probably sooner), this will lead to a death or serious accident involving an innocent member of the public. There are many examples on various websites to support this.
