Disturbing Traffic – Bava Basra – 27


Subscribe to the Daily Daf Yomi Summary here.

The Mishna states: If a tree is leaning over the public domain, it must be cut so that a camel and its rider may pass by.

HaGaon Rav Yosef Shalom Elyashiv rules in reference to our Mishna demanding a tree’s owner to prune its branches that disturb public traffic that he is only required to cut branches up to the height of a camel with its rider. The current obligatory limit, however, is the minimal height demanded by government authorities for building bridges over roads.
