Kingston and snow
I’m stopping to type this on my phone in the middle of a long trudge through the snow and ice on the back streets between Kingston and New Malden. I’m using the back streets to avoid a common hazard of British urban snow, namely narrow pavements sloped into main roads.
There is one of these on the Richmond Road just on the way out of Kingston, which also happens to pass by the town’s big Sainsbury’s supermarket. I had to cling to railings at one point to keep from falling into the path of the traffic.
I know they can’t grit every road, but they should make an effort to keep these pavements clear. It’s only a matter of time before someone does fall and get seriously injured or killed.
