I live on Doggetts Way, a main road that is poorly surfaced. Why oh why can't we have a salt/grit bin?? We used to have one many years ago but the council removed it.

The time is now 6pm and we have had a bus stuck on the hill and cars wheel spinning for over an hour now.

We suffer with this every year. The only way the traffic gets moving is when a small Uno (bus company) van comes with salt and a specialist driver to reverse the bus(s) out of the road.

Do we not pay council tax for salt and grit? One would have thought a main road especially a hill would have access to salt.
