Here we go again. Every year people have to make a fuss to get verges cut. Today I was trying to join the A12 from Foxhall Road, Ipswich and the view from the approach is blocked by really long grass/weeds. We had the same last night joining the A12 at Blythburgh from the Beccles road. There'll be loads of wildlife statements, idiots who think the wild flowers look pretty and those who just don't 'get' the need to see in advance, and at, junctions. Ultimately they will get cut. Why don't they just do it without these yearly rows?
I am in Normandy at the moment, where the minor country roads tend to have six foot high earth banks into the hedgerow. It doesn't matter much whether the wild flowers are growing or not, you still can't see much, particularly in a RHD car on a right hand bend, where the limit point is about the end of the bonnet.

I wouldn't bet on it. According to my Rospa examiner the other week (active Cambs road traffic officer), Cambs official policy is now not to cut them as it helps as a speed reduction measure (road feels narrower, vision less etc).
You could equally ask why they don't just fix potholes - and proactively too
