Right-of-way law governs the ability of the public or certain people to travel across land owned by someone else. But often pedestrians move unpredictably, or run out without warning. Where they constitute such a material restriction on the access, as to impair the enjoyment of the right by those entitled to exercise it, then it would seem that their installation could be challenged on this basis. Easements fall into two categories, affirmative and negative. In my lay and humble opinion, right of way is an agreement between the burdened lot holder to provide access to an adjoining lot for the owner of their lot.
They get out of their own cars to open their own gates, why should the user of a right of way not get out of his car to open someone else's gates. Like other easements, a right of way runs and stays with the land and is not in any way personal. Bicycle riders, moped riders, and pedestrians must follow these rules, too. Is a person entitled to a right of way after using such paths for a length of time? My old neighbour never used to say anything, but the new occupant complains that I have no right to use it. Easements and rights of way are property rights, in fact, that can grant others a right of use over your property.

Implied Easements Implied easements are not created by deed but are implied by law, the courts looking at what the original parties intended and how the property is being used.

Right of way is also used to describe that strip of land upon which railroad companies construct their roadbed; in this context, the term refers to the land itself, not the right of passage over it. How often it is however that these simple roles start to unravel in the actual performance when day to day irritations intervene. So, in the given situation, the white car can not make a left turn until the blue car gets out of its way.
There is a gate at each end of the access road, which is on a steep slope. We have a similar scenario, we have a small-holding with a lane leading to our house.
