    Default Parking Law

    Right, having just moved house I now have to park on the road in a cul-de-sac. I park right outside the house on the other side of the road. I cannot use the drive as I work shifts I would either be blocked in or be blocking someone in, however, i do use it when I can.

    Now, the bloke accross the road also parks where I do, there is plenty of road to park both cars safely. However, I came home the other day, parked up only to notice that when he came home he parked half on the pavement, half blocking the drive to where I live. Plenty of room for him to park. Anyway, went to work, came home in the morning, parked behind him as his was back accross the road. He's been to work today, i have been out and back. He then parks half on the pavement blocking the drive again. The bloke is just being childish, but its dangerous.

    So, my question. Is he breaking the law blocking the driveway or on the pavement.

    (before anyone says it, I do park sensibly, I have been parking elsewhere so he can have "his spot" on the public highway)
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    He is not allowed to block a driveway and he is also not allowed to park on the pavement. Would hes parking on the pavement force pushchairs and the like onto the road due to lack of room to get past?

    Thats what I thought, but I cannot find anything about it on the net that gives me a really 100&#37; answer.

    Yes, how he parks would mean that you could not walk past on the pavement with a pushchair.

    Why can't you park on your drive? That way you're not adding to any 'congestion' in the street and if anyone parks in front of your drive on, or in front of, the dropped kerb then they are clearly causing an obstruction which you can get dealt with - with the other guy having no room for any sort of 'defence.'

    is the lad parking on a dropped kerb?

    by parking on the pavement could a normal pushchair get though?

    If he is parked on a dropped kerb.. or the pushchair is unable to get passed, contact the local police station get the PCSO's or neighbour hood officer to pay a visit and a sk for their formal advise. Normally a &#163;30 ticket unessacary obstruction code 151.

    this will get him upset though... a neighbour at my old house paid the council and got 'entrance' (& a white line) painted on the road outside his drive, this put a instant stop to this silly behaviour. As it give gives a clear road marking.

    The puschair rule is the "common sense" approach, we all know parking is becoming a problem, so most forces adopt this approach.

    Worth having a chat...

    We have the same problem and the police are not interested I would take his number and ring 101 or whatever it is and report him you never know he may get a warning but don't hold your breath.

    If you do report him and you get into a dispute this will have to be recorded when / if you sell your house so you may not want to report it.
