Just driven down the road to the dvd rental place and had to avoid about seven nasty sharp large pieces of glass from a bottle. On the way back I picked them all up and threw to the side of the pavement.

I hate it when youths around here do that, its as if they want cars to have a puncture, I have seen it around here a few times. It was not there this morning only this evening.



I just hate to imagine I may have had to pay out for new tyres.

Picking up glass and throwing it to the kerb is a criminal offence and will result in the issue of a fixed penalty notice or a summons.

Report me then miles.
The local copper I know is called Mr G Adams at Bury police station.

The police know the people who hang around here throwing bottles and glass and they are being dealt with as an ongoing problem.

Would bottle glass actually puncture a tyre? I would have thought it too brittle.
Hi chris Im not sure but I was not taking the chance of me or my neighbours cars being damaged by it.
they were quite large chunks with pointed edges.
I just thought it better to move it before it possibly caused damage.
Anway its sorted now.

If going to the trouble of picking it up would have best to put it in a bag at the same time and put in in the rubbish or recycling. In the gutter or on the pavement is a hazard to cyclists or pedestrians and dogs. (My dog had his foot lacerated by a chunk of broken glass bottle, painful both for him and to my wallet).

Not having a pop as it wasn't you who discarded it originally.

Thats ok andy I will report it to the council tomorrow as there is glass further down the road too, its just one of the problems of living in an industrial area we have a lot of litter left around. Last month after the snow I pulled my wheelie bin down to the end of the terrace to the mill car park to sweep all the glass up there, visitors to the site regularly drop litter and I feel better removing it myself sometimes.
Sorry about your dog I know how upsetting that can be.

If it's any conciliation Tracey, I'd have done the same as you - broken bottles would blend in well with the *** ends, McDonald's wrappers & dog shit that's on most of the pavements around here


Yeh ours of full of dog crap too. I was getting in my car the other day when the workmen in the yard beside my car where I park were smoking and they automatically threw the *** ends over the blue railings on to the cobbled street, I got their attention and said ' can you please not throw your *** ends onto our street please' and the guy apologised nicely.
If there is litter on my back street i always pick it up and put in my bin.

Sounds like u had a near miss there Tracey!! Bloody yobs, I wouldnt have stopped and moved it as in this crappy country you would probably end up being the one responsible for anything that happened!! In my opinion, in the future, just avoid and let it be someone elses problem, its the way the UK works now
