    Yes you can if it's reenforced hose. my first hose wad cheap and not reenforced and it got micro holes in after a few cars went over it. Saying that I think there was a stone under it at the time..

    Sounds good. Those barriers would be really pricey. If I was worried, I'd prob make my own with old car mats and wood or something to distribute the weight. Guess have to avoid someone claiming the ramp damaged their tyre so would have to be a smart solution
