On my return from my last job going down the A3, I came off at my junction had to stop at the roundabout. As I am at the junction waiting to pull out. I check traffic coming from the right and I can't believe what I saw.
I van with the side door open someone sitting inside with a sprayer boom held outside spraying what I presume to be the kerb!!!
I would imagine that it was a glyphosate to do the job that they where doing. I was right behind the van as I pulled out and he was doing between 15-20mph.
I'm not sure if the way they where spraying was legal ? Fast? yes, Efficient? unlikely, Safe? I doubt it.
Not sure if the particular company is a member here I would be interested to hear their view if they are. I am sure they will recognise this method of spraying.
I would have thought at that speed the spray would be going anywhere else except where it was supposed to be going.
They guy spraying just had a tyvek suit on no mask and a green safety helmet should he fall out and bonk his head.
Does anyone else know if companies spry like this?
I though it was bizarre and dangerous not only to the guy spraying but also anyone walking on the pavement.
I could be wrong of course and it is a perfectly legitimate way of spraying but not in my book.
