A driveway is a type of private road for local access to one or a small group of structures, is owned and maintained by an individual or group. Driveways have traffic lights, but some that bear heavy traffic those leading to commercial businesses and parks, do. Driveways may be decorative in ways that public roads cannot, because of their lighter traffic and the willingness of owners to invest in their construction. Driveways are not snow blown or otherwise maintained by governments, they are designed to conform to the architecture of connected houses or other buildings. Some of the materials that can be used for driveways include concrete, decorative brick, block paving, gravel, decomposed granite, surrounded with grass or other ground-cover plants. Driveways are used as paths to private garages, carports, or houses. On large estates, a driveway may be the road that leads to the house from the public road with a gate in between; some driveways divide to serve different homeowners. A driveway may refer to a small apron of pavement in front of a garage with a curb cut in the sidewalk, sometimes too short to accommodate a car.
Either by choice or to conform with local regulations, cars are parked in driveways in order to leave streets clear for traffic. Moreover, some jurisdictions prohibit parking or leaving standing any motor vehicle upon any residential lawn area. Other examples include the city of Berkeley, California that forbids "any person to park or leave standing, or cause to be parked or left standing any vehicle upon any public street in the City for seventy-two or more consecutive hours." Other areas may prohibit leaving vehicles on residential streets during certain times, necessitating the use of driveways. Residential driveways are used for such things as garage sales, automobile washing and repair, recreation, notably for basketball practice. Another form of driveway is a'Run-Up', or short piece of land used at the front of the property to park a vehicle on. Access management Pavement Parkway
For Love Alone is a novel by Australian writer Christina Stead. Set in Sydney and London in the 1930s, the novel tells the story of Teresa Hawkins and her search for the ideal of love, she follows the unworthy Jonathan Crow to London and discovers Crow's corruption and egoistic shallowness. Taken under the wing of an older man, James Quick, she discovers a renewed sense of love and compassion. A reviewer in The Advertiser was not impressed with the novel at all: "This is a sadly disappointing fact, for Christina Stead for long has long been outstanding among Australian writers, her novels have been unusually brilliant books. In this novel, she has attempted a realistic subject and approach, both subject and approach are quite unsuited to her talents, her supposed realism, in contrast to her previous fantasy, is unselective and with out significance. It makes the characters ridiculous figures whose actions appear meaningless and purposeless."In reviewing the novel when it was re-issued in 1970, W.
S. Ramson compared it to Martin Boyd's novel Lucinda Brayford re-issued at that time: "For Love Alone is as different in style as it is possible to be, intuitive claustrophobic in its intensity and introspectiveness, masterful rather than masterly in its assurance. Miss Stead worries at her subject examining and analysing, leeching her material dry, probing through a world which bends before the weight of her examination, becomes strained and distorted into a new and controlled perspective." The novel was adapted into a film of the same name in 1986. The adaptation was written and directed by Stephen Wallace, featured Helen Buday, Sam Neill, Hugo Weaving. 1944 in Australian literature
