My kids walk to school. There is a sharp curve in the roadway on their route to school. The property owner whose property is adjacent to the curved roadway put in bushes where the county easement begins on his property. So, from the paved roadway to his bushes there is about 12' of open property where mostly weeds grow. For safety, I have my kids walk in the open 12' area of his property for safety reasons. This includes a portion of his driveway. He said he put the bushes up to keep people out of the grassy portion of his yard. He said the 12 feet between the roadway and his bushes is private and that my kids are trespassing. I called the county who said that the easement is for their use e.g. utilities, road improvement not for public use. Do I have to make my kids walk in the roadway.Do I have to make my kids walk in the roadway where they might be struck by a car just to avoid having the property owner call the cops? Is he right, is the portion of his property between his bushes and the start of the paved portion of the roadway private property? He said other property owners plant grass and plants up to the roadway. The only reason he didn't is because he parks his travel trailer and cars there sometimes.
