Can I stop thru-traffic along a shared driveway?
Question Details: I own a rural isolated property and have deeded easement to access it. The surrounding landowner has a deer camp which he accesses by driving through my isolated portion. There is pasture surrounding me on his land so he can access the camp from multiple angles not through my property, however he chooses to use my maintained portion without contribution to upkeep. How can I legally stop this additional traffic?
If you only have an easement to access the driveway, that is nothing more than the ability to use or drive over, etc. the driveway; it is not ownership of it. Not owning it, you have no right to stop anyone else whom the property owner (the surrounding homeowner) lawfully allows to use it.
