Disrespectful neighbors

View the pictures attached, the city says it is my responsibility to replace and repair the driveway. When it rains the pool is six inches deep, the water refreezes and takes weeks to drain. Today, 22 March 2018, my wife was cleaning the snow from her car and some idiot came flying down the driveway and drenched both of us. It was a Blue Kia around 11:50 am. in the 6800 block of Roosevelt Blvd.
Question, can anything be done? I have the entire episode on camera.

  • nope the city doesnt own the driveway its a shared property with you and your neighbors so no.

  • Sorry to hear that you too have jackasses that think the driveway is a mini highway. I suggest you take a broom and sweep the water away. Come spring (the real spring, where the weather is nice all the time) and if your handy do some concrete work to get the whole fixed so this doesn't happen. Nobody said it has to be neat, just to stop the water from pooling. Good Luck.

  • Taking Our Holmesburg Philadelphia Streets Back Growing group of empowered citizens!

    The question is, of those other neighbors who share that portion of the driveway, how many are: homeowners, renters, PHA, etc? You may want to find this out. As PHA properties must be kept maintained and if they are not, should be reported. Houses without PHA who just have renters...

    The question is, of those other neighbors who share that portion of the driveway, how many are: homeowners, renters, PHA, etc? You may want to find this out. As PHA properties must be kept maintained and if they are not, should be reported. Houses without PHA who just have renters private or business,well they may or may not care. Homeowners, same thing. You can always lay some pebbles near the area that causes splashing on your area. At least it would disperse water, without splashing. Perhaps others involved would pay for material and you do or you pay someone for the labor? There may be some other idea's, focused on what you can do to improve things for your end. Try talking to neighbors, though. This problem didn't come on, overnight. At some point, probably was a smaller issue. It will not go away. It will only become a bigger issue, if not addressed, in some way. Good luck!
