for wanting to put a note on a car asking the owner to move it?

there's a house about halfway down our street, and they have seemingly just aquired a massive 4x4 to add to the two vehicles they already own. So consequently this car does not fit on their driveway. So they park it across the pavement. right across the pavement. the only way around it is to go out into the road. And this has pissed me off considerably - well it's bloody inconsiderate.
so, I was planning to write a letter and stick it on the windscreen, asking the owner to please park somewhere where he/she is not causing an obstruction as it is impossible for people/buggies etc to walk on that part of the pavement because of that car.
or do I run the risk of causing trouble?

Why don't you phone the local trafic wardens? You should be able to get their number from the council. We have a policy here whereby, if a car is causing an obstruction, you call the council and they send someone straight away. That's the theory anyway, I've never had to do it, but I do know one of my neighbours friends got a parking ticket for parking on the kerb and since we don't usually have traffic wardens in this street, someone must have reported it.

sod the polite note - write a bitchy to the point note (preferably when premenstral having drunk half a bottle of red) and sneak it on their car in the dead of night.
Next day keep a straight face and be horror stricken at the foul language on said note.
Everyone's a winner - well you are and that's all that matters!

Polite but anonymous note first then report it to the council if they persist - it's illegal to park on pavements and obstruct passers-by and dangerous for wheelchairs/buggy users if they're obliged to then use the road.
I left a note on a car windscreen once pointing this out and when I passed by about an hour later, the car had been moved to the road. I got very militant just after my daughter was born .

I'd bet it's moved by now...

I would just go straight to the council
