What if the camera filming the incident was facing the front of the vehicle not the back? As for spoiling the look of a car well that's just crap and the only people who care about that are the sort who can't even wear a baseball cap the right way ... [ more ]

If it is a private road probably you and your 14 neighbours are responsible for the maintenance. If you own the property you should be able to find out from the deeds. If you rent, speak to your landlord. Regards Martin
Joanna A
I used to live on a private road, Martin is correct it's almost certainly down to the residents. You should check as there could even be requirements to maintain it to a certain standard.
