'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. … hp?t=15649

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.

we’ve already given The goverment so much leaveway that we are sitting ducks for
