It is not an attitude. It's a way of living.

 

 

 

 

Way of living? Guess you are right for many. Personally I would prefer to keep a balanced attitude, if only to ensure my kids learn and experience that balance.

Big heavy trucks cutting corners and riding up over the curb and chewing up the grass. Seen a lot of this around here lately.

councils dont like people doing that as it opens them to large bills if people run into them and damage their cars/trucks.

Really? They don't seem to care about uneven pavements that pedestrians can trip and injure themselves on or potholes which can wreck bicycle wheels or loose chipping that wreck our car paint and glass...!

My first thought is: feck the council. But you're right. So make sure you don't leave a rake lying in the grass near that curb.

report them and if someone trips on them then OSH gets involved and can fine them. Our council will have someone round in days if you report it for that reason.
