Default STOP turning around in my DriveWay!!!

Whats the most convenient way to have A holes from turning around in your driveway?
Posts and chain, cones

Anyone ever see rubber mats with fake rubber spikes? Homeowner could just run over it but others would be scared!

I hate too put something up that makes it too inconvenient for us

drivewaychain.com has something nice but i bet its a bit pricey, our drive is a hill so i couldnt put a typical gate.

What's the big deal? Is there a constant line of cars using your driveway so much that it causes some kind of inconvenience to you?

Or are you just a whiny bitch?

Come at me, bro.

Spike strips. As far as the rude comments, it is your driveway and you can do what you want.

Do you live on a dead end street? Is there a No Outlet sign up for the street yet? If not, call the county and see about getting one put in in the hopes it might cause less traffic to begin with.

Might as well add a No Trespassing sign or a Private Drive/No Turn Around sign for your driveway as well. That might stop some of them.

Other than that all I can think of is:
- One-way spike strips (like you see in rental lots, but you would need control over lowering them so you could get back through)
- Road cones or some other item to temporarily block the driveway entrance (someone successfully used a large flower pot)
- Posts and a chain
- Gate
- Wooden board with nails in it
- Position a sprinkler to hit the entrance of the driveway
- Rubber spiked mat (read online that Lowes sold these, not sure if they still do)
- Removable or folding bollards (poles)
- Caltrops (actually this is probably a poor idea)
- Stop Sticks (like the police use ones)
- Park a car at the end of the driveway

If you have anything installed such as spikes, you'll probably need to put in signs and I don't know if you could still be sued for damages.

And if you block the way with a chain or such then you might want to use some day glo spray paint to mark it for night time use.

Basically just try to make your driveway less attractive to turn around in.

You might have a tough time. In some States, they even teach new drivers in their public school classes *how* to turn around in someone's driveway!

If you put some kind of barrier up, make sure that you take into account that part of your driveway is on an easement that you do not have the right to restrict, even if it is up to you to maintain it.

Put your trash cans and recycling bins at the end of it so people can't pull into it, easy enough for you to move when using it, yet others won't bother. Though it wouldn't really bother me, but I live on a cul-de-sac so what do I know

blocking your driveway is a great idea, especially when your house catches on fire and the fire department cant get there

Do you yell at kids who step on your lawn too? Wait outside with a shotgun and shoot those bastards who dare to turn around in your driveway because they got lost. All that damage to a slab of concrete really adds up over time.

Putting spike strips in your driveway is a terrible idea. I can see you getting fined for it. Just because it's your property doesn't mean you can put up whatever you want on it.
