run with the land);
	The road is in an acceptable condition. The roadway(s) within the
system must have all-weather surface(s). ....
	The agreement states how the costs are to be shared (e.g. equally by
all lots, pro-rata). The provision for maintenance must not create an
unusual or abnormal burden upon the ownership of the subject property.
	All of the property owners served by the private road system must be
party to the agreement.
	The roadway meets local jurisdictions emergency service access
	The above requirements may be waived by the Direct Endorsement
Underwriter when the subject property abuts a publicly maintained road
and the easement is a common driveway between two neighbors, and it is
all weather, such as in a shared driveway in many older parts of
cities. "
