Because, you know, the value of your house is far more important than the safety and comfort of your neighbor's family, especially when it comes to a house that you do not own in any way, shape, or form.

In the idyllic city of Fountain, Colorado, neighbors boldly take a stand. Their battleground? The widened driveway and handicapped ramp in front of a neighborhood house. This is for the family's 16-year-old daughter, who suffers from Cerebral Palsy. But who cares about details like what serious conditions necessitate the driveway to fit a handicapped van? What's really important is that this drives the value of the neighbors' homes down! We have to have priorities here, people.

In all seriousness, I hope this family can harness the power of internet kindness and get at least legal assistance for if/when the neighbors sue.
