I get this with a dropped kerb when people ate just dropping off which is fine. I do get out of the car and stare hard if we're getting ready to leave and someone STILL blocks.
The overnight blockers tend to be at the weekend for student parties. They get loud knocks on the doors of they're still there at 10-ish when we try to leave the house we also tend to move the cars 5metres up the road for them as they're usually worse for wear and shouldn't be behind the wheel.
You find this hard to believe but I live on a rural lane and I cannot actually SEE any other houses out of my window. The person who keeps doing it is visiting my neighbour who has her own drive which is about 1/2 mile long, but for some reason she is parking at the bottom of it right in front of my drive. There is no reason for her to do this at all and I couldn't get out to block her in as my drive is completely blocked whilst she does this
Both neighbours are having work done at the moment. The builder's on both jobs keep parking across my drive. My car is on it
Again this morning I had to tell one of them to move the van. It happens every day. I've spoken to both sets of neighbours (who are lovely) they've told me they're having a nightmare with them as well.
Oh and our street is strictly a no parking zone. Double yellow lines on both sides as its a narrow road. Traffic wardens are back on the prowl as of Saturday
