  • NCC policy is to grit oaths in serve weather? Define serve weather at what temp? So a school route used by 2 different schools where someone slips over isn't reason to keep a eye on ? Nearest bin? Policy where on site? Plus how would you expect a heavily pregnant women or disable person or mobility issue or elderly slipping to walk over to bin and carry the salt to that locating and causing damage due to council negligence to not talking reasonable action.

    If it was normal ice you can see it but in this case it wasn't, you stand on it and it would be too late
