I am not a homeowner, so I am looking for the cheapest workable solution I can find. Moving is not financially possible right now, but I live in a really rough part of West Oakland, and I really need to find a way to use this driveway. My car has already been stolen once and last week it was broken into yet again. This time the meth heads on my block moved into it and used it as a toilet.
The driveway slopes immediately down from the sidewalk to a sublevel garage. I bottom out really bad when trying to pull in because my rear wheels are still in the street when my front wheels begin the descent. To complicate issues the driveway is gated, so I must approach it straight on, and just at the crest is a raised metal slide for the gate, which catches on my cars underbody.
Please any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
And PS... No my landlord will not repour the driveway.
Sorry I couldn't figure out how to attach pics. If I figure it out later I will add them.
