Aibu to walk over their garden?

When they park like this? No need to park over the whole of the path. Park partly on to keep the road free if you must but this is taking the piss. To get to the park I would either have to walk my kids in the road or over their garden. I think the latter is perfectly reasonable considering this isn't a one off and they have a garage and parking space around the side of the house.

Garden - and remember to all wave towards the windows of the house!!

Should there be a pic?

YANBU. I recently started walking across a neighbours front garden with my buggy when they parked blocking the entire pavement instead of using their allocated space. Like hell am I going to drag 2 kids into a road on a blind corner just because he likes being able to see his car from his living room window. He doesn't do it anymore!

Sorry forgot pic!

Doesn't seem to have worked. Can anyone see it?

Can see it!! Still say garden!!

Go across the top on the way back. Up over the bonnet and jump off the roof.

garden! Hate people who park on pavements. Might have tried too deliberately scratch one with the pushchair once blush

Is it very obvious that it's a path and not a parking layby? Because it's very wide, and the road is very narrow.

But absolutely walk your DC over the garden rather than in the road!

*to duh

YANBU, go for it.

MrsOverTheRoad Mon 12-Jun-17 14:32:44

Me too...I just squeeze my pushchair right past...regardless of how tight the fit. I'm not going on the road!

OP yanbu.

Garden sounds fair enough to me. Are you in a town that starts with a T? That looks very familiar to me....

Brittbugs80 Mon 12-Jun-17 14:33:39

Across the garden.

Looks a confusing road though! Is there even space on the road to park, looks too narrow.

Road is wider than it looks on picture. If two cars parked entirely on the road then no you wouldn't get past in a car but houses on the other side have driveways. He could have parked half on the path and I wouldn't have minded so much. The owner lives on the house so they know it is path.

42 it doesn't begins with a T.

Maybe the owner is a bit dim and really does not realise it is a pavement? Though you can see another car further down, parked on the road, so you'd think they'd get the idea. But they are so clearly not trying to leave a space free that it really does look like they are being slow about it. If that was my neighbour I'd have a word, just to check it was deliberate!

Walk on their garden. It's grass. That's designed to withstand cows and elephants walking on it. I think your children are not going to trouble it too much.

Have you photographed that from inside your car op? It looks like a dashboard at bottom of the picture.

luckylucky24 Mon 12-Jun-17 14:46:57

Yes. My house is pretty close so I took the pick when we parked up took a pick

WateryTart Mon 12-Jun-17 14:48:33

Garden, obviously.

sodablackcurrant Mon 12-Jun-17 14:48:43

Are there no parking spaces at all on your side of the road? Seems daft if so.

Anyway, I would have no problem at all going across the grass.

Is there a management company, I would report it.

luckylucky24 Mon 12-Jun-17 14:51:35

There is parking down the side of the houses and they have a garage and parking space round the back but aren't using it.

Walk across the path. Especially if it's wet. Push a buggy or pram if you can.
