PERHAPS it is about time for the powers-that-be to start enforcing the law against parking vehicles on grass verges. Apart from being illegal, such parking is highly inconsiderate.

Many people, myself included, do not rely on the infrequent grass cutting by the council: they do this themselves. I personally cut the grass outside eight properties. I do this out of a sense of pride and neighbourliness, not to watch the verges end up looking like farm tracks.
