My neighbour kept parking on my driveway so I had his car towed – everyone is saying the same thing

A WOMAN has revealed that she got her neighbour’s car towed after she wouldn’t stop parking in her driveway.

The homeowner uses crutches to get around – and therefore needs space on the driveway to get in and out of her house.

She tried to explain the situation to her neighbour, but she was unreceptive and insisted that she wasn’t going to park somewhere else because it was too far from her home.

Taking to Reddit, user @u/Purple-Band7937 explained: “Well, a few days ago, when I was coming home from work, she had parked her car in my driveway again.

“This time, her car was parked really forward and super close to my front door, making it pretty much impossible for me to get into my own house. Even an able-bodied person wouldn’t be able to get in.

“There was no space even to open the front door (it opens outwards).

“Here’s what probably makes me an a******. I was furious and tired of the situation, so without trying to talk to the neighbour again, I called the police on a non-emergency number, explained the situation, and they showed up and towed my neighbour’s car.”

Her neighbour was left in shock after discovering that her car had been towed away and called the poster “inconsiderate.”

The woman continued: “She said I’m inconsiderate and should learn how to compromise, and that if I asked her to, she would’ve moved her car (I don’t believe her).”

Parking in someone else’s driveway without permission is a controversial topic and can cause much frustration and distress to the property owners. 

While there’s no criminal law against someone parking on your drive without consent, your driveway is part of your property, so by driving onto it, the person is committing an act of trespassing.

Trespassing, however, is classed as a civil offence, not a criminal offence, meaning the police don’t have the power to make an arrest.

Most people in the comments are on the poster’s side.

One said: “This woman should ‘compromise’ by putting one of those heavy garden benches in the middle of her driveway so no one can park there, and she can sit and enjoy her property in peace.”

Another said: “How about this compromise, “you don’t park in my driveway, and I won’t have your car towed!” I’d call that a win-win.”

A third pointed out: “Compromise is a factor when you both have a claim to something, e.g. if you both owned the driveway and had to share it. It is only your driveway, so “compromise” is non-applicable here.”

This comes after a woman was fed up with a neighbour parking on her property and said it was time to get tough and plot her revenge.

Plus, a mum decided to get the best revenge after finding her neighbour’s car parked in her drive.
