8-1348. Driving motor vehicle upon or across real or personal property of another, intentionally damaging same, unlawful; civil liability; suspension of registration. It shall be unlawful for any person to drive a motor vehicle upon, across or onto the lawn, sidewalk, yard, farmland, crops or fences or other real or personal property of another person, intentionally damaging the same. The owner of any lawn, sidewalk, yard, farmland, crops or fences or other real or personal property so damaged may bring an action in the district court against the owner of the motor vehicle causing such damage for the amount thereof. It shall be a defense to such action if the owner of the vehicle proves that it had been stolen at the time of the damage.
In addition to awarding damages in any such action, the court may direct the suspension of the registration of such motor vehicle for not to exceed six months, and upon notice to the division of vehicles by such court, such registration shall be so suspended.
