aibu to think that if you buy a house 6 doors down from a school, a house with no drive, that you cant (and shouldn't ) complain about people parking in front of your house? and that putting paving slabs over your grass does not make it a drive?
and also that you shouldnt sit in your car tooting and waving your arms about? and then block one side of the road making life difficult for everyone else??

YANBU to think this but I hate the selfishness of the lazy parking rabble you find outside schools.. you would think of anyone other parents would show the most concern for other peoples children but oh no, they go on pulling up outside and blocking the pedestrian crossings.. disgusting.

The school does not own the entire road it is on. It is really rude to park over anyones drive, whether you feel it is a real drive or not.

I do believe that if there is no dropped curb you can park in front of a house, irrelevant of the fact that they have it paved. However common sense would suggest that you park elsewhere and walk a little further. Clearly this neighbour has never experienced the joys of a school run!:)
