Ask a Traffic Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Did the Council know about this beforehand?
You need to know and ask the Council.
ONLY if they knew about it before your accident and didnt do anything about it would they be liable.
If they didnt know about it, they cant be liable.
So ask the Council whether they did - they will have records of inspection and repair notifications.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
If not, I would appreciate a 5 star rating for my answer. Thanks!
Sort of. They would have a defence under s.58of the Act if they show they have a reasonable scheme of inspection in place.
There are national guidelines on the inspection schedules.
Does that clairfy?
