There is a double curb outside the front of our property, my disabled son has tripped on this multiple times as has my young daughter it’s next to a busy road where children go up and down on their scooters and bikes and I have seen other children fall over this extra curb if they had fallen awkwardly or been going a little faster they could have easily fallen into the road.

    Good morning , I would like to know how I can get the white line repainted.? I am registered disabled, have another of mobility problems. As you can see from above photos, the white line is becoming very faint, and other households have started to park outside my house, which makes it more difficult for me. I am willing to pay for the white line to be repainted. Look forward to your reply.
