Get salt back on the pavements

The country's policy on salt spreadspreading is a national scandal.

The roads are well salted and there are requirements for councils to have sufficient stock for a protracted cold spell like we are in now.

However people for the last 5 years are forced to walk on the (treated) roads or risk life and limb on untreated pavements to get around, to walk to the local shop or catch a bus or train because the pavements are literally death traps as they are not salted at all.

How many people have been injured because of this uncaring, penny pinching policy?

Will it take someone to die to change the policy?

I am sure residents will happily spread the salt outside their and their neighbours houses if the council delivered it in bags outside every few properties.
