That’s really stretching the concept of Adverse Possession almost to the breaking point. It was meant to cover things like people walking through your property to get to the beach. If you don’t make any attempt to stop them or to cut-off access, after seven years it is assumed you don’t care and it is considered to be a public thoroughfare.
Watch as ACORN and similar Leftists groups start to take advantage of this. How would you like hoards of welfarists swarming into your neighbor.
Amazing how little thought is displayed around here where it is supposed to be important. I could understand DU cheering this kind of crap but FReepers? Geez are we screwed.
Yeah someone here said yesterday that this legal concept was in order to establish fencelines.
I think you may be thinking of a prescriptive easement.
