I think the problem is that they are 1) blocking off a public street and forcing more traffic through other areas and 2) if they have the right to block off their street to niccas then everyone should be able to have that right and 3) if everyone had that right then the city would not be able to function.
It is a row of doctors and lawyers. Should they be able to buy their way into a utopia?
Sure there are gated communities but I think that's different because those estates were planned as gated communities and nothing's on the other side. But just putting up a gate because you don't want people driving though? They are pretty much changing the blueprint of the city. Not so say that I am completely against it but I am responding to people who said they don't see the issue.
