Default weed grown through asphalt driveway

So I have notice a weed have grown through the side of the asphalt driveway. Didn't know such a thing can happen, anyone have similar experience? and would this be under any type of warranty? It was installed last year by the builder.

I have grass growing through mine on the sides as well but it doesn't really bother me. I was told that you can pour some vinegar/water mix to kill it.

PS - My driveway was done last year also.
