Engine oil on pavement

Reported via mobile in the Pavements category anonymously at 07:59, Wed 3 May 2023

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4511012.

…. Don’t close this without explanation ..,,.

Motorists are regularly parking their vehicles on this section of pavement. This happens daily. An extraordinary amount of engine oil is dripping out from these vehicles on to the pavement and kerb stone. This is an environmental hazard as well as a safety risk to the public.

Something needs to be done to prevent motorists parking on this section. This might be unadopted by the council, if so, the land owners need to be informed about it. If this is the case, please let me know who the landowner is. Thanks
