Frank in Guerneville asks "I own a home in Guerneville, and the road to my home is quite “skinny”. My neighbor parks his car “off road” next to my property, which makes taking out my trash rather challenging.  I asked him to move his car, but he said that since he filed for “non-operation” with DMV, he doesn’t want to move it.  I called the CHP and was told that because it is “off road”, it is not their jurisdiction.  Help!  What can I do?" A quick overview of what I learned from my research..

I have an easement to use an unpaved road on my neighbor’s property that leads to my well.  My neighbor does not maintain the road and over the years it has become impassable due to fallen trees and growing foliage.  Does she have any legal obligation to clear the road; or is it my responsibility because I need access to my well?
