According to Car Scoops, the severity of the restrictor has gotten so great that it has even warranted debate by the UK government.

The article said:

Such is the issue that Watford MP Dean Russell raised the issue in parliament in September, asking for a different kind of width restriction to be installed.

“‘This is something that I have been working on for quite some time now, securing an adjournment debate in the House of Commons and raising at ministerial level,’ Russell said.”


As well as debate in parliament, a petition has also been set up calling for the restrictor to be ripped up. It has so far gained more than 800 signatures.
