Description

So six months ago my family moved house to our forever home. On the 8th March i had a call from the wife to say the house had been spray by oil. So logged into my NVR running on a old Proliant N36L. I saw the attached video. I used choice colourful language at first then disbelief as the guy realised what had happened, cleaned his wing mirror and drove off. It gets worse as the house across the road had to report it and when the company turned up to check how bad it was they all laughed and said "he said he had a little oil spill". I am a ubiquiti fanboy like a few, having edgemax, airmax, unifi and unifi video. I'm so glad i have spent the money on my setup as it makes me aware of what's going on when i’m not there. Watch as he comes on screen in the middle you'll see it jetting up

Wow, so he just left a huge oil spill in the road and drove off?  Did they at least clean that up?  I thought Europe was a lot more woke about environmental issues then us Americans - I guarantee if I had that on video and forwarded it to my county that company would be fined severly if they didn't come back and clean that up immediately.

You tagged the wrong bureaucrats - find the ones that care about the environment.  Any watersheds nearby?  They would be horrified to see that video - that oil going into storm drains - yikes!

Name and shame the housing developer, tweet them and the road sweeper company with links to the video etc., and let your local newspaper know as well.

 

(I'm assuming the housing developer subcontracted the road building out, who subcontracted out the cleaning, so they'll have very slopy shoudlers on this)
