I am fed up of fireworks being let off late at night / early am (whichever way you wish to look at it) by people intent on causing a menace in the street.

This not only causes the inconvenience of disturbing sleep but also adds a very real danger to people and possesions in the proximity of the louts setting them off.

Is it not about time that we adopted a situation where the only people allowed to purchase fireworks were officially licenced and sales of fireworks to the general public were banned?

Tommorow is fireworks night (at time of posting). I have already endured a week (if not longer) of fireworks and will no doubt still be hearing them well into the middle of the month.

I'm actuallyy watching a pretty good display from my bedroom window at the moment!!! I thought being at Uni, there would be a lot of people with fireworks, but I haven't seen students set off any at the moment. Saying that though, lots of people have gone home for reeading week this week, so its pretty quiet round here.
