Since Richard Hammond's crash on Wednesday 20th September, numerous politicians, action groups and random people in the street have called for Top Gear to be pulled off the air at last, stating that it sets a bad influence.

Jeremy Clarkson has written an article here:
http://www.thesun.co.uk/article/0,,2-2006440317,00.html

In it he states that Hammond did get training, and that it looks like the main cause of the accident was a burst tyre (which, obviously, no one can prepare for) AND he says that Hammond knew the risks and still went for it.

We who sign this petition may be fans of Top Gear, might be fans of the Presenters, or might just think that this quality program is well worth a small portion of their TV License fee.

No matter who we are, we firmly believe that Top Gear should be kept on our screens and should be allowed to make more seasons of high quality, top speed enjoyment.

It's a nice idea, but I doubt any of these online petitions ever achieved anything.

agree with Mike V on how the online petitions dont work.

Yet still, ricers on OzHonda.com persist with them.

I started a petition to end online petitions and it got deleted.

How is that fair?

I am living in London at the moment, and the attitude here is that there is no way that Top Gear will stop.

Politicians have been trying to ban it for years, saying that it encourages reckless driving, but they have no solid argument.

its the same as mythbuster

they do all the dangerous things so we won't head for something we don't know and what we're up against.

AWESOME NEWS that the show wont be axed.

Here's a little bit more news, whether good or not depends on how someone interprets the whole situation but interesting none the less.
