Thank you... I was under the impression a sidewalk counted as a driveway

From looking at that, it almost appears that when they say driveway, they mean not concrete driveway, since concrete is specified seperately. Does anyone else interpret it that way?

I will post some pics of the job when it is complete. I went Saturday with 2 guys for help. I was totally amazed at what we got done. We went under I would say 55 sidewalks and pulled all the wire. I had to go under 6 5ft sidewalks, the bit worked excellent with the extension. I did however start using my small hammer drill instead of the 18volt cordless.

I hope to install the fixtures in 2 weekes.

I think they are called flex bits at lowes or home depot. I think I am using the 3/4" bit with the extension on it.
