Vehicles driving up onto grass

Reported in the Verges - Damaged by Vehicles category anonymously at 13:29, Monday 2 March 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 6 minutes later. ref: 2034602.

With the vehicles driving up onto grass when the grass is soaking wet it is causing trench like trails which are deep and this causes the mud to run down onto the pathway . Vehicle drivers are sometimes driving over my front garden to exit the street . This has been going on for a number of year and reported every year .

  • Just providing an update as this is still happening as you can see in the photo we also have council vans driving up and driving quite fast . You can also see tyre marks on my front grass where drivers are driving over to get off the green . Maybe if we could have bollards or something to prevent vehicles from getting onto the green would help . Thank you
