Children playing football in the road and verge

Reported via desktop in the Highway Enforcement category anonymously at 19:29, Wednesday 20 October 2021

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

Children are constantly playing football in the road and on the grass verge area outside several houses, causing a nuisance and damage to property. Cars, fences and windows are being struck daily with the ball, despite requests to not play on the verge and a no ball games sign. The children are also putting themselves at significant risk continually running into the road after a ball. The road is in constant use and it is only a matter of a time before a driver fails to see a child running out from behind parked cars.
