Certain private roads or rights-of-way; gates and fences. Removes the requirement that a petitioner prove that a gate was willfully and maliciously erected in order for a court to require a landowner to make necessary and reasonable changes to a gate erected by such landowner across a private road or right-of-way owned by another person. The bill clarifies that this does not prohibit the replacement of a gate with a cattle guard as authorized by current law. Read the Bill »
