Someone has parked over my H bar and blocked my car in ...

Earlier this year, I had an H bar painted across my dropped kerb because people kept parking over the edge of the dropped bit, meaning I couldn't get in or out of my drive (the drive is narrow and at an angle on a very narrow street with cars parked opposite).

So far, it's pretty much done the trick. But today I went out for an hour and came back and someone has parked a good foot or so over the end of it, meaning that I can't get my car off the driveway. Unfortunately for them, I was not using the vehicle which was (and still is) parked on the drive, but another one. smile

So I've parked across the rest of my H bar. There's now enough room between my front bumper and their rear one to get a matchbox in. There's about a foot between them and the car parked in front of them.

Today is my last day at work for 2 weeks. Do you think I should have an early glass of wine to celebrate? grin

When they knock and ask you to move your car tell them it's not yours. The one that is now completely blocked in is yours...

I’m amazed you managed to get yourself in if it’s that tight a squeeze!
Well done

@WatfordGap how do you get the H bar done?
Constant problems here with neighbours parking over the dips in my dropped kurbs hmm....causes me hassle getting my (unreasonably large) vehicle off my drive.
Though I drive it for a disabled child so it's large for a reason 🙄
