Could clearing up snow lead to a legal liability?
YOUR editorial "This is when community spirit can come to the fore", on January 24, urges people to clear snow from their paths, driveways and in front of their houses.
If somebody then slips and injures themselves on the "cleared" area believing it to safe, when it may not have been completely cleared or, thawed and then refrozen, isn't the person who did the "clearing" responsible and therefore liable to be sued by the injured party?
Uncleared snow is an "act of God" and thus exempt from any legal responsibility.
A person knows the danger and is thus aware that they should proceed with caution.
