Grit boxes - roads only or driveways too?

in N. Ireland
5 replies 1.4K views
Hi Guys,

As per the title - is the grit in yellow, council provided, grit boxes intended for general use or is it supposed only to be for public roads which are not otherwise gritted?

I always understood that anyone could take some grit and use it on their driveway but someone, near our local box, is getting quite militant about this and has taken to defacing the box to clearly state that it cannot be used for private driveways.

Any idea of the facts here?
Always overestimating...
