A close call for the residents of a Pittsylvania County home. They were asleep early Saturday morning when a car crashed into their front porch. State Police say a driver was speeding along Iris Lane, when he drove the car across a lawn, hit two parked cars, before hitting the porch. No one inside the home was hurt. The driver, 23-year-old Christopher Todd Davis of Danville, was charged with driving under the influence. He and his passenger were taken to the hospital, but they have both since been released.

    Some people get "pumped up" for the holiday season, but one family in Montgomery County takes it to another level.     The Proffit's home is on Corbin Drive, just off of Route 460 in Shawsville.      Some families have one or two inflatables characters in their lawn, but the Proffit's have gone well beyond that.     In fact, their front lawn gone - for the time being. It's covered with 58 inflatables.     The display has grown to the point where a neighbor's yard is needed to accommodate all the displays.  This year's set up is the largest date.

It's complaint you hear often, if I can keep my yard clean, why can't my neighbor? The City of Roanoke has cracked down on weed and trash violators the last few years with some success.   In fiscal year 2009-2010, the city issued 2,636 citations.  Out of those, 1,882 heeded the warning, a 71% compliance rate. The number of violations has grown steadily the last few years.  City leaders say it's because of better enforcement. The city has hired more code inspectors.  There are now 11.  The city now only issues one warning rather than several.  Residents also have seven days to clean up their yard rather than ten. If a property owner fails to heed the warning, the city will pay a contractor to mow the lawn and then send you the bill.  Depending on the size of the property, it could cost you more than $200.

Many people hate dragging out the lawn mower and cutting the grass. It can be just as frustrating to look over at your neighbor's yard and see it's out of control.   In Roanoke City, if you're grass is over 10 inches tall it's considered a weed and a violation. There are weeds a foot high on Old Mountain Road in Roanoke. A neighbor told us she's complained to the city but there's not much officials can do. Like other unkept properties, the city can cite the owner.
