WWYD if someone parked in front of your gated drive, meaning you couldn't use it? Day two now...

ajandjjmum Tue 12-Jun-18 19:24:03

Get it towed away for obstruction?

Nanasueathome Tue 12-Jun-18 19:24:43

Do you know who the person is who has parked there?

TingleTots Tue 12-Jun-18 19:26:58

No idea who it is no.

Who would I call for it to be towed? That would be perfect!

LapdanceShoeshine Tue 12-Jun-18 19:32:51

Not a lot you can do according to this

www.gloucestershirelive.co.uk/news/what-can-parked-car-blocking-1097684

which is bloody annoying!

'Police may try and contact the driver to ask them to move their vehicle but they are not bound to do so'

TingleTots Tue 12-Jun-18 19:36:26

That's what I expected sad

Duprasi Tue 12-Jun-18 19:44:28

First off a polite note on the car if that doesnt work then get multiple A3 size printed pages printed "you park like a cunt" stick one on the windscreen every time they do it

ObiJuanKenobi Tue 12-Jun-18 19:47:38

Day two and no diagram?! Poor form Op wink

Any chance your gates open outwards and will hit the car? If they do, I'd give one a good swing and if anyone complains just say you bumped your gate and couldn't grab it in time.

Have you left a note on the windscreen?

If you have the time, sit in your drive with a book and wait for them?

Or... hire a fork lift and move the car to another part of the street, then claim you know nothing!

Rocinante1 Tue 12-Jun-18 19:52:28

Cover the car in post it notes! Like, thousands if notes over the entire car.

TingleTots Tue 12-Jun-18 19:55:55

See I've been thinking sharpie, but would I get into trouble?
Diagram to follow...

TingleTots Tue 12-Jun-18 19:56:34

Diagram as promised

UnimaginativeUsername Tue 12-Jun-18 19:58:03

Do you know some people who could pick it up and move it?

GinandGingerBeer Tue 12-Jun-18 19:58:46

Pick it up and move it into a ditch
It's only tiny grin
Excellent diagram OP

PissOffMauriel Tue 12-Jun-18 19:58:57

I love the 'You park like a cunt' poster - do it OP!

Although doesn't help you now if you need to get out.

GinandGingerBeer Tue 12-Jun-18 19:59:10

Lol @ x post grin

Heratnumber7 Tue 12-Jun-18 20:01:02

Good diagramme. 9/10.

BlackAmericanoNoSugar Tue 12-Jun-18 20:03:29

Give it a shove and see if you can set the alarm off, if the owner is nearby they might come out to check it.

JennyOnAPlate Tue 12-Jun-18 20:06:03

I would accidentally damage it whilst opening my gates.

TingleTots Tue 12-Jun-18 20:06:28

So many great ideas! I think I might shove it first grin

Unfortunately the gates open inwards envy

Nanasueathome Tue 12-Jun-18 20:07:50

Call 101 and see what they advise
They may be able to track the owner or it may even be stolen and dumped

TingleTots Tue 12-Jun-18 20:10:52

I logged in on our local police website, it says that the contact centre will be in touch within two hours. I'm not expecting them to do anything though.

Also checked the reg on DVLA, it's taxed but no MOT

Knittedfairies Tue 12-Jun-18 20:11:32

Has it been abandoned, d’you think?

TingleTots Tue 12-Jun-18 20:12:17

I think they may be unable to use it due to having no MOT, so they have parked it up and left it

Rocinante1 Tue 12-Jun-18 20:15:02

Oh, it it's just been abandoned and blocking you in then I'd be making a nuisance of myself to the police until they came out to deal with it.
