Flytipping (Dangerous hazards)   

 Dog Pooping (Shitting)  

When you take your dog out for a walk and it does it's business; Please clean up by scooping up your dogs poop.

Leaving the poop behind on the ground is a health hazard to the public especially the blind and visually impaired and young children, it is also a slip hazard.

Please contact your local authority to report the discarded dog fouling.

   

 

Listed here are some more potential hazards for the blind and visually impaired.

Cable & mobile mast cabinets, Cycles dropped on pathway, Dumped rubbish. No spinning cones on pedestrian road crossings, No tactile pavement, Potholes/ Holes not fenced, Snow & Ice on pavements, Uneven paving slabs.

 

If you see any of these issues illustrated by the photographs above, please report them by contacting your Local Council.

This could save a blind or visually impaired person seriously hurting themselves, and also reporting a trip hazard that could harm others.
