To not want school run mums to park accross my drive..............

CwtchesAndCuddles Fri 01-Feb-13 17:34:18

I need to vent.

We live very close to dds primary school on the main road through a villiage. There is plenty of parking but very little right by the school because of safety - school zigzags, single yellow lines etc.

There is a yellow line outside my house and residents parking on the other side of the road(terraced houses without drives) the houses my side all have drives and we all use them.

This morning there were two cars blocking mine and my neighbours drive - why do people think they can do this? Just park a bit further along the roadwhere there is space and WALK the extra 100 meters!!!

Don't get me started on the ones who park on the pavement so that people with pushchairs have to walk in the road......................or the ones who pull up blocking my drive to drop off as I'm trying to pull out.

What happens to people on the school run????

theoriginalandbestrookie Fri 01-Feb-13 17:37:31

I'd phone the police if they were blocking my drive and give them the registration number. They will keep on doing it until there is a financial penalty for them to do it.

GrowSomeCress Fri 01-Feb-13 17:39:15

YANBU

Then again, they couldn't possibly park further away and have the little darlings wear their legs out too much or get a drop of water on their heads grin

slhilly Fri 01-Feb-13 17:39:42

I hate it as well. I had one once who got narky when a car tried to pull into my drive. She was sitting in her car on the phone. She came that close to having a full nappy squished under her wipers.

TomArchersSausage Fri 01-Feb-13 17:40:30

Yadnbu. That would drive me nuts.

We regulalry get letters home from school asking people to park more considerately outside our juniors because residents have complained (have you said anything to the school?)

I noticed the other day that all the grass verges down the road the school is in are all chewed up with deep muddy ruts because people keep parking on themsad

TheMightyLois Fri 01-Feb-13 17:41:28

YANBU

but you'll get some snarky person commenting that you should be more charitable, and how they can't understand how people get SO worked up parking.

dexter73 Fri 01-Feb-13 17:45:01

Could you sellotape a notice onto their windscreen asking them to park more considerately?

ChaoticisasChaoticdoes Fri 01-Feb-13 17:45:04

YANBU

Any chance the next time someone blocks your driveway that you and a neighbour could park right in front and behind them so they can't move and go have a cup of tea/coffee.

I can't take credit for that idea btw. IIRC it was something a mumsnetter did once.

LetUsPrey Fri 01-Feb-13 17:48:07

But but but these will be Busy People with Important Things to get to. They don't have time to walk that extra distance. Do you not understand?

YANBU by the way.

JoanByers Fri 01-Feb-13 17:51:29

Try cones?

Bollards?

Land mines?

harbingerofdoom Fri 01-Feb-13 17:51:55

First of all, complain to the headteacher. They can then mention the problem in a newsletter.
If there is no improvement, take the registration number and inform the school.
I suffered from one person that thought that it was okay.
Leaving the house to collect my own children (finished 15 minutes later) and finding myself blocked in again, I waited (had to) and just got a 'Whatever'.
Red rag to a bull - it was the police next time.

Follyfoot Fri 01-Feb-13 17:53:53

I rent a parking space on a drive near a school. There is a dropped kerb in front of the drive, and double yellow lines. Still parents park there. If I cant get onto the drive, I cant park and cant get to work on time. The last time I - politely - asked someone not to park illegally they followed me down the road yelling abuse. The lady I rent the space from tells me that if she has ever asked anyone not to park like that again, she inevitably receives a tirade of abuse in response sad

Gigondas Fri 01-Feb-13 17:54:17

Yanbu. What did the police do harbinger?

katolla Fri 01-Feb-13 17:54:43

Same problem only double yellow lines not single! How do I contact traffic wardens to get them to come by at opportune times? They'd make a fortune. Or can I photograph the cars on the double yellows with number plates visible and send them to the council? Feel like I'm overreacting but I'm 9 months pregnant and some day I have to climb through a bush to get to the street sad

ChestyNut Fri 01-Feb-13 17:55:35

YADNBU!

marjproops Fri 01-Feb-13 17:57:53

YY to complaining to the school 1st.

Then taking registration and police.

Schools sometimes phone for a local community officer to patrol street at school run time once in a while.

car parked across a neighbours drive and neighbour came out and gave them such a rollicking they fled in tears! hasnt parked there since though. AND neighbour told them nEVER to park in front of a drive. Ive had it too, with 3 big notices on my gate about disabled access needed at ALL times, got it in 4 languages too!!! some people just cant read or care...makes you wonder how they passed their driving test!!

NothingIsAsBadAsItSeems Fri 01-Feb-13 17:57:56

Let your DC loose with some tippex pens :-S
Catch them before they can get out of their car and ask them to move, don't take no for an answer entitled cows

CwtchesAndCuddles Fri 01-Feb-13 18:02:13

I've contacted the head and asker for a reminder to be put in the newsletter.

One of the offenders this morning was very ashamed of herself and I almost felt sorry for her! The other was too busy talking on her phone to care!

Police are very reluctant to come out - by the time they would have arrived the cars would have been long gone.

I will consider the block them in an have a cup of tea option though...........

digerd Fri 01-Feb-13 18:03:20

Got me thinking. I walked to school, as in the olden days, neither parents had a car. But can't remember walking 2 miles to school or back in the rain, but must have done. We all did.

harbingerofdoom Fri 01-Feb-13 18:03:23

That person never parked across the driveway again. Perhaps I got the message through their thick skull grin

I would have carried out the threat though but would the police have done anything?

I often saw traffic wardens and the odd officer outside the school but now parking enforcement is privatised and the police have more pressing matters to deal withsad

Absoluteeightiesgirl Fri 01-Feb-13 18:06:20

My mum has this outside her house. I had tried to park in a residents parking zone for permit holders but a woman there told me to fuck off when I asked her to please move her car as she was in a residents permit zone. She was waiting to collect her daughter from the prep school. She was delightful. Not to worry though. I simply blocked her in so she couldn't get her massive 4x4 out. Let her rage for half an hour before I went out to move my car.

harbingerofdoom Fri 01-Feb-13 18:07:04

I believe that you can block an empty driveway but not one with a car on it.

Obviously, the double yellows are a separate matter.

GhoulWithADragonTattoo Fri 01-Feb-13 18:09:09

Well I think a call to the council might give good results. The people who live at the cottages next to our nursery complained to the nursery that their drive kept getting blocked. The nursery sent around an email asking to only parking in designated bays and not blocking cottage drive. A few weeks later at exactly nursery collection time local traffic wardens were ticketing cars that were illegally parked. I can only imagine that was direct result of the local residents complaining.

harbingerofdoom Fri 01-Feb-13 18:11:03

The local community officers do turn up and patrol. It is probably more meaningful if the school requests them.

Mollydoggerson Fri 01-Feb-13 18:13:00

Smear a sh1tty nappy across their windscreen, if you have one, or a yogurt/honey.

WildThong Fri 01-Feb-13 18:16:34

YANBU, very annoying. But what about the school run dads? Are they allowed?
smile

MerylStrop Fri 01-Feb-13 18:18:21

photocopy a lot of passive agressive notes and litter their cars with them

cones is a good idea (also humorous)

manitz Fri 01-Feb-13 18:18:53

i live on a road with difficult parking and have a lowered kerb, technically you can get them a ticket if you complain to the council though I don't ever complain about neighbours i do write down non neighbour cars that park over my lowered kerb and get tickets for regular offenders, they don't do it again but these are often parking for the station and cars can be left for at least 8 hours or upto a week so they need to be there long enough for a warden to get out.

At our school a neighbour of mine drives every day (it's 0.6 of a mile) it takes me the same amount of time to walk and he has a massive cayenne. He always parks over someones drive. People in the road have complained to the school (about other parents blocking drives) and the school takes it seriously and will act. They have told neighbours of the school to give reg numbers and will deal wth it.

We are moving and at our new school people park on the pavement so I struggle to get a pram down. I can tell it's going to be fun...

manitz Fri 01-Feb-13 18:20:40

er and yes I am a bit anal

Matildaduck Fri 01-Feb-13 18:21:37

Yanbu we have a twat of a mum who parks her mahoosive 4 x 4 across ( i kid you not ) the school gate.

She's got peroxide blonde hair and is a chav. Even the school email hasn't stopped her.

I would love to smear a dirty nappy across her window.

HildaOgden Fri 01-Feb-13 18:27:14

Print out an A4 flyer with the words 'you have blocked emergency services access,please refrain from doing it again'.

Then paste it on to their windscreen with wallpaper paste.They won't park there again.

Purple2012 Fri 01-Feb-13 18:29:11

If you cant get IN to your drive because someone is parked there it is not an obstruction. If you cant get OUT then it is.

I suggest, each time someone parks across your drive and you cant get out you have to be somewhere. Ring the police on 101 and tell them you are unable to get out of your drive and you have to be somewhere. Give them the registration number of the offending vehicle. Chances are they wont be able to send someone in time, as it will be a low priority. But if they do have someone free to send they will. Dont get angry if they dont send someone, just every couple of days ring up with the same complaint - you have to be somewhere and you cant get out. Dont do it every day or it will be really obvious!!! But each time ask for a log number and keep a record.

After 2 or 3 weeks of this, when you have quite a few log numbers have the same problem again, and this time ask for a local officer to contact you as this is an ongoing problem. They will have a record of all your calls and the registration numbers. If there is the same reg over and over again it is even better.

When a local officer contacts you they will be able to have someone patroling regularly for a while to get the message across.

It will take time and patience, but the police wont know there is a problem unless you keep ringing it in. Its no good waiting until you are at the end of your tether with it and expecting an instant solution.

NewYearNewBoo Fri 01-Feb-13 18:31:41

Call your local council and ask if a traffic warden can patrol at school time. They can fine people for parking on dropped kerbs and on double yellow lines.

marjproops Fri 01-Feb-13 18:37:09

harbingerofdoom- shirly not!

an empty driveway? what if the home owner comes back while car is blocking driveway?

Happened to me once. couldnt get into my own drive and cars were parked on both sides of road so no one could overtake.stayed where i was waiting, about to phone police.

cars behind me honking, a woman came out and started giving ME grief for holding up traffic.

I told her why ''I cant get into my own drive, you see I have a disabled child with me,why dont you take that reg number of the twat thats done this and tell police/whoever the person shouldnt be on the road as they cant read signs''.

woman ended up agreeing with me, i refused to move till the f*** came back and then SHE got all the grief from the 6 or so cars behind me.

thank you. and breathe......

Pancakeflipper Fri 01-Feb-13 18:39:02

Tell the school. Give them all the car regs. Speak to the Head Teacher
The school should inform parents/carers to be respectful of the residents.
And schools have good contacts with the local community police and they will come at school drop off and pick up times and monitor the situation.

One resident near our school rightly complained about the same old lazy arses parking outside his property on the pavement blocking access to his home. It was a daily thing . And one afternoon 6 lazy arses collected their darlings and came to find parking tickets under their window screen wipers.

ruby1234 Fri 01-Feb-13 18:40:55

Write 'Do not park here' on their windscreen with lipstick.
Takes an age to get off, smears all over. grin

harbingerofdoom Fri 01-Feb-13 18:45:50

The empty driveway blocking is not an obstruction, margproops,daft,or what?

Purple2012 has said the same sad. We'll just have to put up with it.

mrsjay Fri 01-Feb-13 18:48:58

Yanbu I live near a school and the mad parking drives me bonkers I dont have a drive though but they double park and everything, complain to the school and the community police officer somebody must have done that here because after christmas the traffic warden was doing the rounds at 9 am grin

First I would contact the school

You could always use these ... wink

quoteunquote Fri 01-Feb-13 18:49:17

make sure you put their picture on here

start a FB page, with the name of the school, Hatherfield village school selfish lazy parking, put the pictures on there,

get some sticky labels, write on them where they can view their selfish lazy parking, stick on all windows.

JoanByers Fri 01-Feb-13 18:49:55
JoanByers Fri 01-Feb-13 18:50:14

ooh, fucking triple snap

FeckOffCup Fri 01-Feb-13 18:52:52

Break an egg over their window, it's an absolute fucker to shift once it dries on.

Purple2012 Fri 01-Feb-13 18:59:23

Don't put anything on their cars. If it cannot be easily wiped off (you have to be able to just wipe it for it to come off) then it could be classed as criminal damage. It's not worth it.

acceptableinthe80s Fri 01-Feb-13 19:09:03

A relative of mine has the same problem, they got hold of some sort of private parking signs that have a very sticky/glue based backing and stuck them on the windscreen, drivers side. They are a nightmare to remove grin

We are lucky that the police sometimes stand outside ds's school as the station is round the corner. This week is walk to school week and they've been there every day. Much amusement to be had watching everyone panic as they cant park on the corners/double yellows where they usually park.

harryhausen Fri 01-Feb-13 19:13:41

We have this at our school. I do drive to school (it's a 45 minute walk otherwise) but I park at least 3 streets away as I don't want to get embroiled in the parking/dropping/pulling out frenzy there is outside the school.

I have NEVER parked across a driveway. I have a drive. It's quite rural, plenty of places to park and once I woke up to find a random car parked over my drive. It was there for hours. I was LIVID.

The HT at our school gets soooo many complaints about parking. It's so bad that parking wardens are often there once a month or so. The school has asked people to report offending number plates to a certain tel number.

GreenShadow Fri 01-Feb-13 19:16:53

The police may be reluctant to come if you call them and ask them to come now, but try asking for a PCSO to patrol occasionally at school times.

harbingerofdoom Fri 01-Feb-13 19:19:48

It was quiet during the snow as everyone walked but when it's a bit of rain out come the cars again. Everyone should have got used to rain by now.

The parking on the corners,which are double yellows, is 100% full at school time, it is so selfish and dangerous.

Do you think one of those cardboard, cut out, policemen would help (from a distance)?

SilverClementine Fri 01-Feb-13 19:25:34

I have this exact same problem and it makes my blood boil. I always challenge ppl but have never contacted the school or police. Am feeling inspired to do such that now so thank you grin

WorriedMummy73 Fri 01-Feb-13 19:31:29

As a Mum who takes my 3 primary-aged kids to school by bus the whole parking thing drives me insane. At our school we have a cowardly head who hasn't made an appearance at the main gate (where we regularly have people park on the pavement and reverse into families) since before last summer hols. This is no exaggeration - the man does not do confrontation. Parents spent ages getting single yellows on the road outside the school and a sign saying no parking between 8.30-9.30 and 3.30-4.30 but as police/council/head/golf club (who share the school lane) all refuse responsibility people now park where they damn well please. As a bolshy, fuck-with-my-kids-safety-and-I'll-give-you-what-for type of Mum I quite happily tell people off for poor parking and driving, but get an awful lot of verbal in return (usually in front of my kids) despite being polite and not swearing myself. What really pisses me off is the amount of other parents walking by who watch me get the abuse then say (when the offending driver has gone) 'oooh, good for you, someone has to tell them'. Yeah, thanks for the support when I was getting sworn at in front of my 4 year-old. I still keep doing it though - keep hoping I will slowly get the message across or that other parents might actually support me...

marjproops Fri 01-Feb-13 19:33:09

okay, so Im daft .

(having a disabled child and a million signs on gate emphasising that its a disabilty drive .)and child cant walk much.

So that makes it okay for nutters to park there. nutters who CAN walk that little extra bit. and have total disregard for anyone. and disrepect for disabled people.

Thanx.

pinkpetrol Fri 01-Feb-13 19:39:56

We have this problem at the school where i work. Our neighbours were rightly getting really angry. I gave them the number of parking control at the local council and the parking wardens came a few times. But cutbacks mean the police wont come- not even when a parent drove his car at our caretaker! So now i patrol the street outside the school ensuring our neighbour's drives arent blocked or parked on or both. All four foot ten of me every morning seems to have sorted that problem and our neighbours are really appreciate the effort we are making.

harbingerofdoom Fri 01-Feb-13 19:48:07

Margproops not you but the silly bu**ers that thought up the rules.

andubelievedthat Fri 01-Feb-13 19:52:26

agree withPurple2012, anything you put on the windscreen is dangerous re driving>stupidly , if driver were to drive off without removing visual obstruction and be involved in a rta, trust me, u would find yourself in court , charged. A college in Glasgow, during the 80"s pasted a polite but firm notice to my car"s side window as i had mistakenly parked where i shouldn"t have, and i reckon they must have had the paste made up in a weirdo science lab ! it took me hours (really) to remove that notice< it certainly got the message firmly fixed to my "where not to park in Glasgow" bit of brain.

Bearmonkeysmum Fri 01-Feb-13 19:55:37

I get school parking rage nearly everyday. We live in a little cul de sac right next to the village school & the entrance to the road is at a right angle to the school gate. People used to regularly use our drive, block us in or park right up to our front window (I do mean right up, front wheels on the path to front door which runs underneath the front window). A call to the the HT & police stopped this eventually.

The problems we have now are that idiots park on both sides of the road or across the entrance to the road so you either can't get out or in. It happened when I was heavily pregnant & needed to pop home for my notes & then off to the midwife but couldn't get into the road as someone had parked diagonally across the entrance & was sat in their car waiting for their little gem to finish school. When I asked them to move as I needed to get into the road I was told I shouldn't try to get into a road where there was obviously no parking available. I politely pointed out there was parking available & was told dont be so fucking stupid, I can't see any. I then heaved myself & v large bump out of the car, pointed down the road & said "my driveway". The arsehole then grudgingly agreed to move but told me I should be more considerate to others & come home at a more reasonable time!! Unsurprisingly my Bp was quite high when I got to MW!

MortifiedAdams Fri 01-Feb-13 19:55:39

Theres a school at the top of my street and a year ago they made the whole area Permit Parking and gave someone with a serious chip on his shoulder the job of Attendant. I love him.

Could you suggest something similar to your local council?

marjproops Fri 01-Feb-13 20:00:32

harbinger-my apologies, I thought you were getting at ME!

get enough of that already with poor DC. hug for you then!! ;-)

And you're right, silly bu*****ers them lot.

WorriedMummy73 Fri 01-Feb-13 20:01:15

When we had the snow recently I was walking to the bus stop with my kids and a woman parked on the pavement started to pull off into the road (so obviously not watching the pavement side). The front of her car missed my youngest by inches and the back swung towards my older son, so I banged on the back of her car to make her stop. She actually pulled up alongside the bus stop and said 'I was fully in control you stupid bitch' then drove off. My kids were flabbergasted. So was I for that matter. Some people are just unbelievably arrogant and self-centered - to think that some of these are raising children truly frightens me!

BoffinMum Fri 01-Feb-13 20:10:44

I've got mobility problems, a blue badge, and when I am having trouble walking, I sometimes park completely legally on a public road near the station, not on a line or anything, not blocking a driveway, and there are very few cars parked on that long road and plenty of space for about fifty additional cars others. In other words, I am not in anyone's way at all.

Some nutjob keeps writing all over my car telling me not to park there, because they have decided this public road is their road because they happen to live there.

I am very pissed off.

justmyview Fri 01-Feb-13 20:17:56

take photos of offending cars clearly blocking your drive and email to police? I suspect they couldn't issue tickets based on your photo, but might enable them to write to the offender warning them off

harbingerofdoom Fri 01-Feb-13 20:18:24

Margproops-so glad to hear that the impatient drivers backed you up.

What happened? Did they apologise or did you get a mouthful?

Can you get a disabled space painted on the road, or even a yellow line?

harbingerofdoom Fri 01-Feb-13 20:19:50

Sorry, rushing again. What happened to the blocker?

marjproops Fri 01-Feb-13 20:26:02

I told blocker Id phone police next time, but what the other drivers were saying was sufficient enough! she didnt even apologise, drove off with middle finger up at all of us. btw its a dropped kerb too.

We're actually moving soon so hopefully won't get this agin. It hasnt happened since btw.

supposed to have a designated space where we're moving to so i hope to God it doesnt happen there!!!!

harbingerofdoom Fri 01-Feb-13 20:43:01

Oh,that's great, best of luck in your new home.

Hope it's easier for you to manage.

marjproops Sat 02-Feb-13 18:06:01

Thanx harbinger.

OP, hope you get it sorted too soon.

From the Highway Code section 243

DO NOT stop or park
near a school entrance
anywhere you would prevent access for Emergency Services
at or near a bus or tram stop or taxi rank
on the approach to a level crossing/tramway crossing
opposite or within 10 metres (32 feet) of a junction, except in an authorised parking space
near the brow of a hill or hump bridge
opposite a traffic island or (if this would cause an obstruction) another parked vehicle
where you would force other traffic to enter a tram lane
where the kerb has been lowered to help wheelchair users and powered mobility vehicles
in front of an entrance to a property
on a bend
where you would obstruct cyclists’ use of cycle facilities except when forced to do so by stationary traffic

Tailtwister Sat 02-Feb-13 18:26:45

YANBU, it's really unnecessary and only serves to irritate the residents affected.

I have come to the conclusion that there will always be selfish, self centred people who put their own needs before others. Sometimes it's due to stupidity and other times they are fully aware of the inconvenience they are causing, but choose to do so anyway. DS1's school is full of them. Parking over driveways, on zig zags, the lot.

marjproops Sat 02-Feb-13 18:34:47

OP, take what MoreCrack said and quote Highway code section 243 to the school, AND maybe write HC section 243 on a paper and stick that on offending cars!!!!

In fact I may cut and paste that and do same thing! Lets all do it!

SofaKing Sat 02-Feb-13 18:48:17

Some great suggestions here, I might print off section 243 and paste it over every lampost in the street!
I live three doors away from the school; they have recently provided a one way system through my road for school users and a waiting section within the school.
People still park in my street, on one occasion right in front of me when I was waiting to cross with my DC.
They also run their engines as it is cold. This is illegal near schools under a bylaw in our county, and there were TV adverts last year about this. When I pointed it out to one mum she had no idea it was illegal (or that they clouds of choking smoke might be bad for the kids?)

I'm just so scared for the dc, last week ds2 who is 20 months broke his reins and ran a few steps into the road while I was locking the door. He isn't the only toddler to do this or the only child to cross without looking and the school run people just speed up the street without looking, or park without looking often on the kerb.

I wonder if it has occurred to any of them what they would feel if they hurt or killed a child?

bigbluebus Sat 02-Feb-13 18:49:38

I remember when DS was at our local Primary School, parking was always an issue. The footpath down from the school leads to a triangle around which people park. At the end of the triangle, you turn left onto the pavement.
I remember one day walking home with DS to find that someone (who had arrived late) had squeezed her car onto the end of the row and parked directly across the start of the pavement. The result of this was that as children walked down the footpath chatting to their friends, they just walked around her car to get onto the pavament, but in doing so, they were inadvertently walking out into the middle of the road and th eoncoming traffic. It is a wonder noone got run over.
I told DS to wait for me, whilst I stood next to her car and waited for her to return. I made her stand and watch what the children were doing and pointed out how bloody stupid she had been and how her parking could be responsible for the death or serious injury of a child. She 'apparently' hadn't realised! questions whether said woman had the intelligence to pass her driving test. SHe certainly never parked there again in my lifetime at the school, although I had seen her park in equally 'stupid' places around the local town. SOme people will never learn.

Snog Sat 02-Feb-13 18:51:06

The police will help you with this
But if someone parks on your actual drive they won't get involved...
Crazy mixed up world, eh?

diddl Sat 02-Feb-13 18:56:14

Is it right that it´s OK to block an empty drive?

My Dad has a garage, so the drive is always empty...

Dededum Sat 02-Feb-13 19:00:24

We live near the junior school and my boys walk home, usual stupid and dangerous parking, on bends, on pavements, chatting with doors open so blocking pavement.

Nice mum, who I like, met me at some do and said - "oh, nearly run A (9) over yesterday". Didn't know quite what to say, if you didn't park your gigantic 4x4 so stupidly or even parked further down the road or heavens above your kids walked the ten minutes home.... No it was my son's fault for having to negotiate the obstacle course of school pick up...

thebody Sat 02-Feb-13 19:20:32

Gosh.. Key the car... Obviously ensure you aren't seen..

Antipag Sat 02-Feb-13 19:25:23

We have his EXACT problem. We started up a Facebook group taking pictures of offending vehicles and naming and shaming. We started distributing in paper form in the playground. It definitely stopped. Although then we had he renewed problem of people driving along at a crawl on he pavement whilst they search for somewhere to sneak their car, that was until one such driver ran a woman's foot over and the local police got involved.

Tensixtysix Sat 02-Feb-13 19:27:45

If your car is on the drive and they block it in, then they are breaking the law and deserve and 'egging'. If you can't get back onto your drive then you have to wait as you don't own the piece of road outside your home.

Eggs are great as they will stick to the paintwork good and proper. That should stop them!

Never feel sorry for the shame face these parking twats put on when they're caught
in the act!

They then think you'll be equally sympathetic THE NEXT TIME they do it.

I photograph the offenders, yesterday some dick in his mahoosive van blocked the entire path on the other side of the road!

I told him his parking was dreadful and I got smile back. Twatpack!!.

Right next to our school is a small cul-de-sac. One 4X4 mother parked her huge truck across an old mans drive for whole afternoon during sports day. He obviously took issue, she made it clear she didn't give a and he ended up turning his hope pipe on her and soaking her!!! Great but then she called police and he got done for it angry

Lappy - What on earth coukd the police charge him with? Surely an elderly man with poor eyesight just missed aim when he was watering his flowers?

Hose pipe ban?

I don't need to water any flowers (all drowned) but the path is looking very mossy wink.
