    If there's enough room I go in front of the car.

    Go around.

    You don't know the reason why they parked there. I do it at my mums house so that it's easier to transport a sleeping bub from driveway to house.

    What did u do??

    Eta: just read what u did. No biggie bout the shrub..

    It irritates me. There is a man in an electric wheelchair at the top of my street that travels daily to the other end of the street to catch the train to work. I think that makes me more sensitive to it, because it's a safety issue for him to be on the road. If it wasn't for knowing him, I probably wouldn't think twice.

    Maybe they have a disability so parked as close as possible?
    Being that u said there was not a car parked in the street id just have gone out and around.
    I can see how this could a big issue in the city but in the suburbs not as much. No footpaths where I live and everyone parks on the crossover

    I usually am walking DS to school and when I have no choice, I go on the road. It's bad enough just with a pram, but more annoying with a preppie that already dawdles behind.

    It's for easy emergency access as well

    Fair enough. I always leave enough room between my gate and car so that prams/wheelchairs/the postie can get through. I also move my car when there is a space.

    No postie is endangering their life if they have to drive around my car in my street. I'm not going to not do it for this reason. The postie would remain perfectly safe, and it is convenient for me to park there when there are no parks in my street.

    It's not always laziness. My car does not fit down my driveway completely...when I had a newborn, a toddler, and a pre-schooler it was hardly lazy to not want to walk a couple of blocks with them just so I can get them home. This is why I would never get annoyed, or leave a note. You just don't know why the person has parked the way they have.

    Luckily the ranger in our area is very big on fining people for illegal parking!

    I would take the path of least resistance and think how annoying it is to deviate but then not give it a second thought.
