Clippings endanger cyclists, motorcyclists

June 15, 2022  By Turf & Rec

A municipal councillor is pressing for a new grass clipping bylaw to be enacted in Kingsville, Ont.

Coun. Kimberly DeYong wishes to see regulations in place that prohibit grass clippings from being blown onto streets, sidewalks and bike lanes. The idea was originally pushed by a local resident.

Grass clipping present a slip hazard for two-wheeled methods of transportation.

She said such a bylaw needs to include contractors from leaving debris on roads and sidewalks.
