This past saturday I had a lime truck scheduled to deliver 10 tons for my plots. As I am leading the truck down a gmo road that leads to our property gate there are two bulldozers(I know the owner)parked in the middle of the road. I told the lime truck driver I think we can edge around them and we did barely. However within seconds my front right tire is flat. A two inch cut picked up in the mess I had to get in to get around the dozers. I have wrestled since then with the idea of calling the owner and explaining the situation and asking him to help pay for my tire. What would you do?

Is this to your own personal property? If so, what right does he have to block the road and why would he? I think I would definetly let him know and be asking some questions.

Did he know the lime truck was coming. Two dozers parked in the road means something. If there was room enough for you and a lime truck to go around then there was room enough to park the dozers of the road.

I would say " dude, can you please move your bulldozers so I don't get a second flat tire from trying to drive around them?". If he refused to move the bulldozers then I would probably consider sabotage.

It is my personal property and there was barely enough room for us to wiggle by but it was rough. My thinking is this wouldnt have happened had he not parked in the middle of the road. I know it was my decision to go around but i wouldnt have had to make that decision if he wouldnt have parked where he did.
