What else can I do with my sump pump drainage?

My sump pump discharge runs through underground piping to the street and of course tends to puddle right in front of my neighbors driveway. He hasn't said anything to me yet but it has to bother him... it bothers me lol so what else could I do with the discharge?

    Check local codes on this before you do anything and see if the local drain commission will address the puddling in the street

    Run it through a  garden or  dig a  drywell and  put the discharge into that.

    Is there a ditch or storm drain you could get to by repipeing some of it.  Or shorten the pipe so it ends in yard an can soak into ground.  Just dont cut so short the water soaks back into where your pumping from.

    Redirect it. Maybe dig an adequate soakaway and pipe it to that. Hire a digger fill the hole with old bricks and/or limestone rejects. That should work unless you are on a bed of clay. Even then it should work to some extent.
