'leaveway' for 'leeway'

If you leave room for something, you’ve got leeway. 500+ ghits:

Weight Watchers is wonderful, but even it allows to much leaveway with sweets, etc.

Coding, OTOH, is a set standard. Deviate from that and things just dont work; so
there’s no “creative leaveway” freedom that you have with designing.

What we can agree on is that our security and immigration procedures need an overhaul and a tad more leaveway for current security precautions.

Fortunately, my buiding isn’t owned by a big corporation, so I have some leaveway on DIY projects.

I also was told the contract does not offer the author any leaveway or rights.

... Another second for your foot to brake, which then leaves you one second of leaveway. This of course only applies if you are travelling at the speed limit.

paulfmarty posted the same phrase on 11-12-2005 (11-11-2005, technically). Definitely an excellent one that should be Databased.
