Last night I came home to find a car parked just outside my house below my neighbour's windows - now, not only this isn't not a parking space but the neighbour has driven through 3 different front gardens to get there!!!! WTF??!! (There are deep tyre marks on the lawn as a result 😖)

I'm attaching an homemade diagram to show how ludicrous the situation is. The yellow square is the current car's position and the yellow line the path taken!!! The green lines show my property as well as the invisible boundary on my front lawn. The driveways on the picture are slanted and once all cars are parked in their respective driveways (like they were this morning), there is no way out!!!

I've left an angry note on the windscreen but as the car has been covered in tarpaulin it looks like it could be there for a while!

So what do I do??? Build a wall/fence so it can never get out?? 😬

You should have posted this in Chat for traffic. We love a bonkers parking thread on here! Nice photo btw but i I can't see any colours on it.

Why would he have driven across three gardens? Was he drunk? Where would he normally park?

Yes chat for traffic, though I am amused this is posted in etiquette. I can confirm that it is not good etiquette to drive over your neighbour's lawn!

Report it to the police. He may have covered it with tarpaulin because he's already hit something as a result of dangerous driving.

The diagram doesn't seem to have worked.
That's crazy though, I'd be very unimpressed with someone driving across my garden. What are you going to do?

If you report your thread to MNHQ they will move it for you?

Off for popcorn. . . . See you in Chat!!??

Pez82 Wed 22-Feb-17 13:17:39

Ahh I will try and repost in the right place with the right photo!
I'm new to this smile
Thanks all!!!

You don’t need a new thread. Just get this one moved.

Hi Pez82, we can happily move this to Chat for you to save you reposting a duplicate thread. Just say the word. Thanks.

Pez82 Wed 22-Feb-17 13:21:24

Hi Lou, that would be great as I'm struggling to find the right place!
Thanks a lot!
I can then attach new pic smile

Can you explain the new photo...doesn't make sense with your description of the diagram! Xx

Finola1step Wed 22-Feb-17 13:24:54

I need to see the picture now...

F1GI Wed 22-Feb-17 13:27:13

Do you know what sort of car it is? (I.e. Old banger off road type thing) The tarp does sound a bit odd as someone has pointed out.

Pez82 Wed 22-Feb-17 13:28:34

Here's the pic!!

Pez82 Wed 22-Feb-17 13:29:15

Looks like a decent car, definitely not abandoned

WhoremoaneeGrainger Wed 22-Feb-17 13:31:04

No pic OP

SomedayMyPrinceWillCome Wed 22-Feb-17 13:31:29

Great pic!

Pez82 Wed 22-Feb-17 13:31:56

Really? It's showing on my screen
Let's try again

Can you and your other neighbours visit together, point out that you'll let him off by prior agreement if the weather is dry so the grass doesn't get damaged? He must have 'sorn'ed it.

HappyFlappy Wed 22-Feb-17 13:34:28

No pic here other! sad

<deeply disappointed as loves a good parking thread>

This thread shows so much promise - pleas try again with the pic.

pregnantat50 Wed 22-Feb-17 13:35:04

I get the message

Image cannot be loaded. Make sure the path is correct and the image exists.

amammabear Wed 22-Feb-17 13:36:27

I can see the pic... Not that I'm smug about it or anything

LucklessMonster Wed 22-Feb-17 13:36:31

That is bizarre!

I'd be clubbing together with the other house to pressure Idiot Parker to repair your gardens.

blueskyinmarch Wed 22-Feb-17 13:36:37

What a bastard. If he wanted to take his car off road to SORN it surely he should have asked permission to drive across these gardens and said how he would make good the mess he made. I would speak your neighbours and then do a collective approach to him to ask how he plans to rectify the gardens? Is he now parked in his own garden?
