    Default Do you park your car on other people's lawn in front of their house?

    There is some random car that has parked itself on the lawn in front of our front fence. wtf. I find it rude. It's not like there is no space to park it on the actual street.

    I find it extremely rude! Technically its council easement but it kills the grass!

    Total pet peeve of mine! And if the grass is soggy it can leave tire marks

    I find it rude too. Good thing about acerage though, no one parks out the front of ours. I like that.

    I'd call the local council. In Victoria you are not allowed to park on the nature strip and you can report anyone who does to the council who come and give them a fine.

    In cases like this if it is not safe to, or no space to park on the road I will try to park on the verge between houses that look like they wouldn't mind. Eg where grass is unruly, other cars are doing same etc I would not (unless there really was no other option and I was only going to be a couple minutes and urgent) park on manicured lawns, gardens, verges that had obvious barriers or deterrents such as bricks as a marker.

    And I would most definitely beware of Retic.

    I don't when we're going to say, someones house and the roads are wide and we can get away with parking on the road.

    But, my DDs dance school is on a small road in an inner city suburb where there is zero car parks, the roads are already not even 2 lanes wide so when running late and I can't park 10 minutes away and walk, I'll park on the verge.

    Mind you, this isn't someones lawn, it's the verge/council part. (For example, the house, their lawn, a fence, a footpath THEN the verge/council grass if that makes sense).

    It is technically council land. Give them a call and they will come out and move the car on or fine the owner.

    Do you mean the strip of grass between the road and the footpath? Yes I park on it if there is nowhere else to park- which is most of the time outside my close friend's house and my BIL's house. Where else am I supposed to park if the road is full?
