We bought a house with a shared driveway but my neighbor across the street uses it every day to turn around - should I ask him to stop?
We purchased a house that has a shared driveway. We don't have problems with the neighbor we share the driveway with but with the neighbor who lives directly across the street. He and his grandson drive halfway up our driveway to then back out into the street to park in front of their house. They do this at least twice a day EVERY day. I guess my problem is that he never asked us if it was ok for him to continue doing this (assuming the previous owners allowed it) and the bottom of the driveway is getting really messed up from the constant traffic. We currently have no other problems with them so I'm wondering if I should address it or leave it alone and repair the driveway damage. I've been in front of my house when he's done it so he obviously doesn't think anything is wrong with it - I just think it's common courtesy to ask first to use someone's private property on a daily basis. Also, if our neighbor who shares the driveway says it's ok but we don't is he still allowed to do it?
