It should be noted that the reference of the law to road users and “people” is somewhat vague. It says, but not explicitly, that the financial obligation applies to landowners or landowners for private road maintenance. HB 523, as amended on September 24, 2019, attempts to clarify the requirement for a person to pay for the maintenance of a common private road. In order to address Act 139, PA 1972, the Road Commission adopted a revised policy that says: “It is illegal to spend public funds on private roads. The Roads Commission is therefore legally prohibited from working there, unless adequate provisions are respected and in accordance with the law allowing residents of private streets to work through their respective townships, taking charge of maintenance and/or improvement as landowners, provided that their route complies with certain conditions of the law. The second Confederation, which the applicants argue, provides for Avon Road`s maintenance application requirement in a 1968 agreement that provided that the owners of Avon Road-Immobilien would make payments to the municipality for sorting, paving, border insulation, drainage and derelating and replacing shady trees on A Roadvon. The payment of the sums owing under this agreement, which were actually registered on May 20, 1968, automatically released the owners from the terms of the subdivision agreement and “any other obligations to bring or contribute to the improvement of Avon Road … with the exception of the obligation to carry out future repairs after the municipality has completed the following work. The first instance found that the agreement did not apply to its personal part to the facts established there, as it concerned “only the maintenance of the road itself” and, in this case, there were no allegations of dangerous condition “in or on the roadway”. The duty of several owners of facilities on a private street to maintain and repair the road was established in Borgel v.

Hoffman, 219 Pa.Super. 260, 280 A.2d 608 (1971). In that case, the applicant was injured when she fell into an alley between two rows of houses. The complainant claimed that their fall was due to a defective condition of the driveway. The defendants, who were the owners of the land just off the site of the applicant`s injuries, joined, as defendants, other owners of property located along the entrance.
