Vehicles regularly mount kerb. RISK TO LIFE

Reported via mobile in the Potholes & road surface category anonymously at 15:10, Monday 19 April 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2679531.

Due to width of street and parking spaces on corner, every single vehicle (including larger delivery vehicles, recycling vehicles, lorries etc) have to mount the kerb on a blind corner. There is a significant risk to life. In addition, vehicle tyres are regularly damaged due to being forced over the kerb.

The kerb does not serve any residential properties, or thoroughfares, the safest solution to preserve life and minimise risk as low as reasonably practicable would be to remove kerb altogether.
