Sharing a driveway

I own a home that has a driveway that I have been sharing under an ''Agreeement'' that I wrote up for the new purchaser of the property. My home and the adjhacent home have been owned by various owners over the years however sharing the driveway was never a problem as the two homes were rented by one owner. Now I own this property myself and the owner next door is now selling their property and I would like to know what my position is on the driveway. Most of the driveway, especially the entrance is on my property. Can I force them to build their own driveway on their property? If not, how do I ensure that they are responsible for half the plowing and repairs when they occur? The current owner did not pay their half of the bill and now the plowing service won't plow next year unless I assume the full cost myself and collect from them on my own.
