Do you have any legal basis to back that up with? i.e. some case law, regulation or even legal opinion?
Basic common sense really...
In eThekwini (my frame of reference), residents are asked nicely to maintain their verges but there is no legal responsibility to do so. I would hazard a guess that the same applies across the board and also any city that has a bylaw that requires residents to maintain the verge is probably a very legally problematic bylaw but it still stands because nobody is going to spend stupid money challenging it, when its just cheaper (and more common practice) to maintain the verge yourself.
