  • This is still an ongoing issue. Was reported last year, nothing has been done at all. I believe a driver may be liable to prosecution due to damage caused by repeatedly driving over the same patch of grass verges. not to mention driving over the public footpaths.

  • Investigation: Ongoing (No Action Necessary) - It is not an offence to park a motor vehicle, with the exemption of a HGV, on a grass verge or pavement unless it is causing an obstruction or there is a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) in place prohibiting it. ... A Traffic Regulation Order will be indicated by either signs or road markings to show parking is prohibited.

    Damage to highway verges from people parking and driving over them is widespread throughout the county and is particularly bad over the winter months due to the inclement weather as the verges do not have time to dry out.
