We maintain the highway network in a safe and accessible condition for highway users by:
- Preventing, wherever possible, mud being brought on to the highway
- Minimising the problems with related flooding and surface water drainage systems serving the highway
In Somerset we expect some mud on roads, particularly in areas where farming is a major activity. But it is an offence to leave mud and other material on the road, and people who do so may be liable to prosecution and for the cost of cleaning it up.
If mud constitutes a danger or obstruction, action may be required to have it removed. Whether any action is taken will depend on how much and where the mud is.
