A private road may become a public road by implied dedication. The road had been used by the public many years. Owner tried to "repossess" his property by placing sign posts with "no trespassing" signs and a wire across the road. After a vehicle hit a sign post, the County filed for injunction against the owner. The court found that there was evidence finding an implied dedication of the road given the fact that the road had been used by the public for more than 50 years and the county had demonstrated its acceptance of the dedication by making improvements to the road. Hawkins v. Smith County, 2004-CA-01117 (Miss. Ct. App. 2007).
