I was reading your response to an old question "What if any liability do we as homeowners with an easement…. We have a similar situation. We have a driveway easement from an owner who rents the house and the accompanying property that includes our easement to a renter. This easement is the only access to our house. The renter does not need access to the easement to park or use the property. We do not have parking problems, but do have a problem with people turning off the county highway with a speed limit of 50 mph onto our driveway sometimes too quickly which upsets the renter and the other neighbor. The renter has now on two occasions followed two of our teenage female guests onto our property to ream them out with foul language and a threatening manner. After the first time this happened, my husband asked him not to follow young women onto our property to verbally abuse and bully them. Today he threatened the young lady with shooting out her tires with a gun. Any thoughts?
