    Default Parking cars......in front of your place

    Sorry this is more of a vent our neighbour parks there car in front of our house smack bang in the middle of our front area of our house, (you can fit 2 cars in front of our place) but where they park no one else can park here. It wouldn't bother me if it was just parked up on a avo/night basis but it lives there and it hasnt moved since. (they 1st had a car 4 sale in front of our place, I just thought once they sold the car it will be all good but once it was sold they replaced with another that day! They park cars in front of there place by night but they are hardly there during the day, just on weekends. I doubt there is anything I can do in regards to this.

    I don't want to approach them as I have the feeling they are doing it to annoy us, and it's working! (seriously, why would you park your car in the middle when you can park it closer to your own property trying to make an effort to have at some respect for your neighbours?)

    We now have started put our rubbish bin out close to the car on a weekly basis... (a few weeks now) And it don't bother them... I am now going to start with letting my kids play out the front with there bikes on our driveway around the time they come home to try to annoy them, but doubt it would work...

    Has anyone got any suggestions?
    Vent over thanks for listening

    Yes! I have a suggestion.

    Tell the Council the car has been abandoned.
    We had this annoying problem with a neighbour who felt it was fine to park his car right near our letterbox 24/7. It's not. And Council issued a notice for him to move it, he didn't and they ended up moving it themselves.

    Which is a good thing as hubby was going to torch it.

    Would you be able to get some blue/green packing tape from somewhere?

    Just leave a bit folded up sort of underneath the front passenger side door ( like someone was interrupted in the process of trying to steal it)

    Leave close enough to the edge that they can see it, but sort of under the car as well.

    The kids idea is not that good though. they could get hurt on the road or damage the car, then you will have to pay. and that's nowhere near the outcome you want.

    You could call the council? see what their laws are on abandoned cars?

    Good luck,

    And the moment they move it, plant a verge garden so no-one can park there.

    Call the council or the cops. Surely if it's your property then they will be told to move it.

    We had this issue with idiots recently. I called the police and they came out and got all the details and said when the car does get moved to then put bollards in so they can't get their car there!

    There's not a lot you can do if the car is parked out on the street. In NSW the council can issue a notice if the car is not registered.

    Council bylaws usually state that you can only leave cars on the street for finite periods. If the car belongs to a non resident it can be considered a nuisance and moved. So yes, while the road is not your property, you can do something about someone parking there constantly.
