Neighbours carers park over my drive

AIBU to be itritated that neighbours carers regularly park over my drive?

I live semi rurally, large development where every house has a drive with space for 2/3 cars - very rarely does anyone park in the actual street.

Next door has a succession of carers who regularly park over my drive, preventing me getting out. There's room in neighbours drive for the carers to park or a vast length of space on the road, away from blocking people's drive. They seem to prefer parking over my drive!

Only twice I've had to ask them to move as, having waited, they were making me late for work. I never say or do anything if I'm not going out.

So, is my irritation unnecessary?

Have a nice word with your neighbor
If that doesn't work, do the carers work for an agency, if so contact the agency

Do all of the things Synyster suggests. But take a photo of the car first, just to show us grin

Ask them to move every single time whether you're going out or not. If it inconveniences them they'll soon learn to park properly in the first place.

Woo hoo, sounds like a nicholarse and cuntaline story all over again grin ..
Oh how I've missed parking threads!

Why are they doing it?

PenguinOfDoom Fri 12-May-17 23:25:46

Ask them not to park there, every time.

What is this sudden obsession with diagrams and photos?

People think it's funny. It's cliquey and tedious.

Thanks all, it's very rarely the same carers. I've only seen be same car / people a few times - although I'm not always in when they are there as I work so much.
Why do they do it? Sheer laziness. No valid reason, seriously there's so many other places to legitimately park.

Neighbour and my drive are side by side, with fence in between. Room for 2/3 cars in each. Neighbours drive usually completely empty when they block me in, plus the entire street also empty.
Neighbours quite new, and I don't know them.

Will start to ask them to move more frequently, hoping that they'll start to be more considerate

if its not the same carers its is most likely an agency
so ask the name of agency and complain

Shootfirstaskquestionslater Fri 12-May-17 23:49:36

speak to your neighbourgh about it and if they carry on doing it just get their cars towed away that'll learn em am joking by the way every time they park over your drive just ask them to move they'll soon get the message.

Are you sure your neighbour isn't called Nicholas grin

I'd ask them to move even if you're not going out. Every single time. Yanbu to think they shouldn't be parking over your drive!

OMG this just sounds the same as my neighbours who's carers parked on our drive for over three years when our drive was empty. Our neighbour Nicholas told his employee and his carers they could park on our drive drive when it was empty from 10 til 4pm and we didn't find out out for ages although the other neighbours knew what was going on for ages. It then turned out they were were MNetters and accused me of making it up. Be very careful of who your neighbours are!!! Our house is rented out but I stili check to make ure our neighbours are not parking on "our" drive that we are maintaining.

birdladyfromhomealone the Mnetters did what ???😨.

I remember your post but missed he ending.

TheMaddHugger Sat 13-May-17 03:49:50

Can you put up a sign that says no parking over driveway ?
I grew up across from a school, so I understand the frustration

scaryclown Sat 13-May-17 04:13:24

What, Tarco or Tahcoah

UnbornMortificado Sat 13-May-17 04:14:24

Could be timekeeping related instead of laziness.

Doesn't excuse what they are doing (and I never have) but a lot of home carers aren't given adequate time to both make calls and travel between them.

instrifeagain Sat 13-May-17 04:25:45

Personally, I block the drive of the person being cared for, not their neighbour! As a pp said, ask one of them which agency they work for - then contact them to complain.

bloodymaria Sat 13-May-17 04:58:05

What, Tarco or Tahcoah What does that mean?

Crashbangwhatausername Sat 13-May-17 05:27:38

Try asking the neighbours first
