Road covered in mud and muck from farm

Reported in the Roads/highways category by NEIL FAGAN at 10:55, Wed 27 February 2019

Sent to Hampshire County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 1556523.

Tractors have been trailing mud and muck from Stroudwood farm along the B2177, which with the M27 road works is busier than usual, leaving the surface slippery when wet and very uneven when dry. A range of powers are available to the Police and the Highways Department, primarily the Highways Act 1980; and the Road Traffic Act 1988, if you'd only apply them:

Highways Act 1980 Section 137 states: “If a person, without lawful authority or excuse, in any way wilfully obstructs the free passage along a highway he is guilty of an offence”.

Highways Act 1980 Section 148 states: “If without lawful authority or excuse a person deposits anything whatsoever on a highway to the interruption of any user of the highway he is guilty of an offence.”

Section 149 of the Highways Act 1980 states: “If anything is deposited on the highway so as to constitute a nuisance/danger the Highway Authority can require the person who put it there to remove it forthwith”. Mud causes skidding and is therefore dangerous and a nuisance.

Highways Act 1980 Section 161 states: “If a person, without lawful authority or excuse, deposits anything whatsoever on a highway in consequence of which a user of the highway is injured or endangered, that person is guilty of an offence”.

Furthermore, the Road Traffic Act 1988 covers situations where a mechanically propelled vehicle is driven dangerously on a road. Driving dangerously can include driving a vehicle in a state that could cause danger to others.

  • Yup roads are covered in animal waste, slippery as when wet, toxic too, then when it dries it forms a bio-hazardous respirable fine dust.
