Is entering a driveway considered trespassing?

Toledo, OH |
Filed under: Criminal trespass

For a case we need to determine if this car has moved. Obviously an easy way to do this is to mark where the car is parked with chalk or put something under the tire. If the car was parked on the street there wouldn't be a problem. However, the car is parked in a private driveway at a residence. Is it trespassing to enter the driveway to accomplish this task?

  1. Maybe. It would be a good idea to petition the court to grant you the ability to inspect the car. The owner will have to make the car available to you if the issue could affect your case. Using a pre-trial discovery tool would be much better than rolling the dice.
