    I would only park here if it was a friend / family member that the house was in front of and if I had asked first.

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

    No I don't park on the nature strip at friends places unless the street is very narrow.

    yes, i mean on the strip of grass between road and footpath... weird thing is, I don't know who's car it is. certainly not my visitor. or my neighbours. because i saw them both go out. but yes, the street is definately wide enough and there is more than enough space to park on it.

    If it looks as if it's been dumped, report it

    its illegal in QLD too - because (I believe?) people with strollers/ wheelchairs cant use the footpath / its a hazard for pedestrians maybe? .. so I'd be making a phone call too .. if its irking you .. rofl

    No, as I don't want a parking ticket from the council, or to block the footpath or grass verge for people to walk on.

    Wow! If some random person parked on my front lawn I'd be seriously unimpressed.

    If it's my own visitor, I don't care.

    EDIT: So you mean just hte nature strip? Meh. I wouldn't care, so long as they weren't blocking me in. I thought you meant on the actual front lawn...

    My nan's next door neighbours have a lot of people over all the time and this is something that is a constant PITA for her. They park in her drive way all over her front lawn, they have knocked bins over and damaged her water meter. My nan hasnt said anything out of fear and they have never asked. Very rude. They are just rude people in general though. When me or my mum is over there they stand out the front and just WATCH you.
