You know what is really amusing about that picture? There are two driveways including the closer one that is not as steep. This means, someone built one driveway like this and then...saw fit to do it again.

The architect that designed these driveways should be sent back to school and take the licensing exam again. I have to wonder given all the regulations that we have that a building inspector would allow this. Heck I once built a deck on my own and the county inspector stopped it because one of the steps was 1/2" too high!

A true test of PT Barnum's theory.

That would be interesting until you got to the bottom of the driveway...then you will need a shovel :-O

For the love of everything holy in the world don't send them back to school, it is a waste of resources they won't get it...promise!

In fairness to the Architect, it was a tract development with reuse of plans, site adapted by the developer. Probably should've used the upslope design....lol!
