Bins left too close to the Road

Bin Men have left bins too close to the road causing damage to my car twice. The first time it was a light scratch just beyond pigeon house lane as the road corners. The second 10/07/19 (today) was opposite the large house that’s next door to the old school, which completely destroyed my left-hand wing mirror. I’m really quite upset at this as I was only doing thirty and moved over slightly to avoid hitting a car coming the other way. Due to how narrow the road is and bin being left essentially on the road it completely destroyed my left side wing mirror (see images above). The repairs of which are going to cost roughly £300.

I’m sourly disappointed as this is not the first time but also caused allot more damage and could’ve even killed some poor old person if they were in a small car.

  • I'm not a worker for this site, but swap bins for people, then think about how you drive without due care and attention.
