Yeah, but which wheel? Emotion: smile

LOL! My bad. At the time, I used the term, "steering wheel" but also advised that it is impossible to always have both hands on said steering wheel. Gotta shift sometime...

I was just trying my hand at picking nits.
Not bad, eh? Emotion: smile

One neighbor who lived across the street from us took exception to anyone walking in front of her ... anyone had been so inclined.) I guess she thought that her property line extended to the middle of the road.

Actually, I think most property lines do extend to the middle of the road. That is the case with my house, for which the latest subdivision was done in 1877. At that time, it was likely a small dirt or gravel road. However, this does not mean that I can install a tollgate on my side of the road and charge people for passage, or even add a speedbump (which I would really like to do). I'm not sure exactly where the county maintenance responsibility ends, and where mine begins, as the road seems to get a bit wider each time it is paved, and the rough stone wall seems to be constantly eroding, helped at times by drunken speeders who seem to crash into it at 2:00 AM.
Mine is a fairly rural neighborhood, but in more typical suburban areas I have heard of people complaining when someone parks on the public road in front of their house, assuming that they have a right of ownership. Some people just seem to have nothing better to do than peek out their window and find fault with others who are just trying to make their way along a public road.

That kind of thing varies quite a bit, and there tend to be various rights-of-way granted to utilities, etc. If it's a development with a homeowner's association there may be additional issues, and so on. Best thing is to find out what actually applies by talking to city hall, the cops, or if things get that far, an attorney.

"A " says "don't let your dog poop." "B" says "but if your dog poops, clean it up." The language in "B" "commit any nuisance" means that this infraction is different from something like littering. This is a prime example of bad legal writing

Yep, bad initial legislation. "B" results because it's often easier to add an amendment than to repeal the first law.

I live in a very rural area myself, but our property lines extend to either 6 or 8 feet from the road. I can not remember which it is. We are however responsible for the maintenance of the property between the property line and the road(ie mowing the grass). Things like this vary depending on where you live.
