We had a standard policy when faced with customers wanting basketweave or stack bond block paving on a driveway: they sign a waiver exempting us for any loss of pattern alignment. We gave them writen 'advice' that, in our professional opionion, BW or SB was not suitable for a pavement subject to vehicular overrun and we would only install such work under written instruction.
I honestly believe that, no matter what you do in the way of edge restraint, BW *will* fail again in the medium term. It shifts when it;s laid on a patio, so it has no chance on a driveway.....unless you switch to fully-bound construction and get the client to pay for all the additional work and materials.
