Drivers, pedestrians, contractors, cylists, dog owners - all of these people use our roads and pavements every day. With so much going on on our streets, it is little surprise that there are areas of contention arising from their usage. What laws apply if fairground attractions obstruct traffic; if a dangerous dog is allowed to roam the streets without a muzzle; if a drain overflowing has led to dangerous amounts of surface water?

This book describes those laws that come into force on a daily basis on UK streets, particularly busy roads in urban centres, and considers numerous types of potential danger and public nuisance. For ease of use, each topic is listed alphabetically, and a comprehensive index further enables easy location of the appropriate legislation. Dangers and problems on our streets covered by this book include:-

  • ice and snow,
  • anti-social behaviour,
  • litter,
  • noise pollution,
  • pavements and footways,
  • trees,
  • scaffolding,
  • drunkenness
  • dog control.
Each topic points to the parts of Acts which are appropriate to the topic, and summarises effectively what the law states under each relevant Act. This book also investigates where liability falls, especially with relation to local authorities, and explores the duties of local authorities in ensuring the wellbeing and safety of all road users. Lawyers will find this an invaluable ready-reference guide when dealing with personal injury and nuisance claims.
