Another little step forward on snow, clearing thereof

Ah, at last – in addition to more legal myth-busting, some expectation that businesses should act on keeping snow clear from outside their premises in addition to people clearing snow from outside their own homes:

VOLUNTEERS who clear ice and snow from the streets are not at risk of legal action, Henley Town Council has been told.

If a person clears a pavement and does not leave it in a more dangerous state than before, they should not be concerned about being sued by someone who then slips on it…

Councillor Allan Follett, a member of Henley’s snow taskforce, which is recruiting volunteers to clear town centre pavements, said: “We can clear up some of this misinformation about liability and let shopkeepers know that they can clear their own areas.” [Henley Standard]

You can also help yourself by trying this little verbal gambit on snow.
