I find that where I park regularly, the grass dies from lack of sun and rain.
I make a feeble attempt to park in a slightly different spot now and then so I don't kill all the grass. I need it for compost.

Frankly, I have too much gravel space in my lot (for now it seems). What's the downside to letting weeds take over the gravel? Is the future soil any better or worse off? Not a big deal, just wondering.

Hook it up upon your return and hit the other side. A weaker rope can be used to attach to the car, so that a snag can't rip your bumper off. An old harrow or drag chains will also work.This is a red neck grading technique that destroys weeds. Eliminating pot holes is a side benefit.
My tenant has a big truck used in his excavation business. He occasionally drives along the very edge of the half mile road, crushing weeds and tree seedlings into the gravel. The beam dragger is used only when grading is needed. That process rips out center line weeds. About 3 hours work per year. Probably 15 hours per year chopping branches and trees that reach into the roadway.
My first bit of advice is that if you are going to be a mime, you shouldn't talk. Even the tiny ad is nodding:
