SIR - The weather has once more brought forth the winter whingers.
Ambulances, never mind snow ploughs and refuse collection lorries, find it hard to traverse residential roads because of the number of parked cars.
Why cannot residents and shopkeepers/ business owners clear pathways as they used to do in the 50s and 60s?
Forty or 50 years ago when bad weather such as we've lately enjoyed were frequent, only bus routes were cleared and gritted. Forty and 50 years ago council services were not privatised.
