abutting owners

Those owners whose lands touch a highway or other public place. 1 Am J2d Adj L § 1; 25 Am J1st High § 153. It is arbitrary to limit the meaning of "abutting owners" to lands bordering a highway and not to speak of lands as "adjoining" a highway, but the usefulness of a distinction in legal articles between lands that abut on a highway and adjoining lands generally, arbitrary and fanciful although it may be, is not to be denied. 1 Am J2d Adj L § 1.
