Hey! That dumb jazz went by my house about 2 years ago, reached down on the floor of his truck for his smart phone, ran off the road launched like that on my driveway but instead of landing ON MY house landed on the truck's side at a 45 degree angle in the road. Supposedly totalled the truck, only had a couple thousand miles on it. Took almost a half hour to get a Sheriff here. I live Clear out in the boonies, the closest shopping mall is about FIVE-SIX miles, two towns within 5 miles. Totally 100% the driver's fault, kid was cursing his boss because the boss made him drive. Kid could have quit, or could have paid attention to his driving.

It's that power line I'd be worried about. Wouldn't get too close.

I've seen that happen all the time. Road gets moved with in few feet of your front door and nothing you can do, eminent domain.

You could not give me a property on which the house is 30 feet off the highway.

That's pretty impressive. Be that driver couldn't do that again if he tried!

My BIL was well off the road until the did some road work. Now his front door is maybe 40 feet from the road. He didn't have a choice. They just came in and took it.
