    Ive been fined a couple of times for parking on the nature strip directly infront of my own house, by my local council. Call your council next time she parks there.

    BTW each time I have been fined there has been no parking available anywhere near the house. we have all have steep blocks, and to top it off we have a narrow road with a lot of solid yellow lines. Its nearly impossible to fit a car driving down the centre of the road due to all the parked cars.

    our street has limited parking and is really narrow so people always park right on our doorstep (our front door is 1-2 metres from the street, no front yard) across the footpath and on the grassy strip.it creeps me out to see & hear people hanging out in their car cause I can see them from my couch :/

    when they park there, our row of townhouses can't put out our bins so we usually have to put them across the road or surround the car and **** them off lol

    we're also right on the 90 degree bend on our street so if they park there we basically are up on the other sides curb to pass & hope no one is coming from the other direction

    they also block our letterbox so friends & the postman can't find us

    the council planted trees to deter people but nope. we've had notices to remind everyone on our street that they can be fined but people still do it.

    it grates my potato 😡

    Plant a tree in the middle, is very common for councils to do this on nature strips

    It happens at my house too, but we have huge front yard space, so if I can't see their car it doesn't bother me, it bothers DP though.

    Plant a native tree, like a eucalypt, and put wooden pickets around it so it looks 'official'

    Update: I just got off the phone to the council.

    Where I live it is illegal for someone to park on the nature strip. Although apparently the owner can (will keep quiet about that little fact ).

    When she next parks there I can call the council and they will send out an inspector who will fine her. (I feel a bit mean about doing that though...)

    I am not allowed to plant anything on my own nature strip

    Are star pickets a plant??

    Would you really cause someone to get a fine for parking in front of your house?

    No. I don't think I could do that. It annoys me but I am not vindictive.

    Id be piiiiiissed if I visited a friend and noticed I had a fine when I was leaving.

    I park on a nature strip every school day....like most schools, the parking fills up early and parents dont seem to grasp the concept of the "kiss and go" so I park a street away from the school and walk across...the house I park at is a corner house and the side I park on always has loooong grass and tall weeds cos its the side of the house not the front. It would annoy me getting a fine there, let alone at a friends house.

    Hahaha, I lived in the inner city for a few years and was lucky if I got a park in my street. So I don't give a hoot if people park on my nature strip. Although if they could mow it on their way out that would be good.

    I park on my parents nature strip all the time because they live on a main road and sometimes people don't notice a car on the st, my old car was rear ended when parked there!
