Recent wet weather, coupled with the inconsiderate behaviour of some motorists, has led to grass verges around Dringhouses taking a hammering.
On many streets, such as Wains Road, Swale Avenue, Eason Road and Gower Road, verges are badly churned and rutted – see pictures below.
Local Lib Dem councillor Stephen Fenton is asking motorists to avoid making a bad situation even worse.
“Nobody wants to walk out of their front door to be confronted by a mud bath. With the ground sodden, it’s obvious that persistently parking on the verge will cause significant damage,” Stephen said. “I’d ask motorists to show some respect for our area, and not make a bad situation even worse.”
