Only 10% of the people clean their pavements. This is really very few!
However, the law requires that we make sure that they are clear.
If someone breaks a leg or gets hurt on your pavement, you (the person occupying the house) have the responsibility for the medical expenses.
So, out with your shovels and brooms !
You can also use salt which is available at supermarkets or at Brico but be careful- it melts the snow but it creates black ice. Therefore, you must be vigilant and get rid of the water which causes it.
