My question involves an easement in the state of:Alabama
We have three lots serviced by a gravel drive. The lot nearest the "paved road" has a 30' easement, as do I, being the second closest to the road. The third lot is at the end of our drive and easement. Over the years my neighbor and I have maintained the road while the owner of the third lot has done nothing. The third lot owner has kids and employees who speed down the road and present a danger to small children and also damage the road causing potholes etc. After dropping another $1000 on gravel and grading my good neighbor and I decided to install two small speed bumps in order to not only slow down the third neighbor but to also slow down anyone coming down the road too fast and causing damage.
Here is the problem: The third neighbor is pitching a fit about the speed bumps and using his dually truck to tear up the speed bumps by revving his engine and spinning his wheels. He has also told his employees to drive around them and spin tires in the grass thus doing further damage. This morning he announced that we were barricading the easement with the speed bumps and now a trash can on either side in order to prevent them from driving in the grass.
What con we legally do to make him stop destroying our property and to recoup the cost of fixing the damage. I say Legally as the quick answer will result in a physical confrontation that we would like to avoid.
