We have an easement on our property for two houses located behind ours. Is it legal for other people to use the right of way?

We have spoke to these individuals several times and they have agreed to stop, but they continue to use right of way daily. We even posted private drive signs at the entrance but the signs have gotten torn down.

i would have to see the easement language and its location, but if truly a private easement, then no, only the owners of the two benefitted property, yourself and invitees and guests of all three can use it. These other folks - where are they going and why are they using it?
