    Don't you just love it when some fool goes and dumps a can of paint onto the ground?. Cycling into work this morning, someone has tipped a can of white paint onto the path, now being spread all over. The can is now on the verge, but there's a big dollop still on the path, slowly getting spread about. Had to do a bit of swerving to avoid white tyres. I have emailed the council about it (on Fix My street), but it'll probably be July before they do anything:blush:.

    Some idiot did this near my house with white paint. It took about five years for it to finally wear off:cursing:.

    You're right the council will most likely remain satin their arses or just gloss over it. Ta-dum tsshhh!

    If they are anything like our local council, someone will come along in six months time, and tip black paint over the top

    Did you speak with Matt at the council?

    Our council will just whitewash any request with excuses.

    All these negative waves are painting a bad picture and it is making me quite emulsional.

    I would brush it off as a bad experience.

    I agree. Best to keep riding. I suppose if it gets really bad he could try rollers?

    It must be cold commuting at this time of year. I hope you're wearing your undercoat!

    Where ever they are, I'm sure they are primed and ready to act!
