    lest

    Sometimes the burly watchman warns you that tyres would be deflated lest someone else other than the house owner park their vehicle on their roads!

    Is it correct to use "lest" in the above sentence?

    No. In fact the whole sentence is a bit of a mess, its meaning is not clear.
