Does anyone know the law regarding parkers who consistently park right outside your door. I mean every chance they have even though there are spaces in the street. Also for weeks on end - I thought they had abandoned their car. It just means we cannot get the car near the house for cleaning it, and carrying the shopping at least 10 houses away. We feel like we are being the nuisance when we take someone else's space outside their house as we cannot park outside ours. We even had to park in the next street recently a few times. They parked solid for 2 months some time ago. I understand the highway is public and they have a right to park anywhere in the street but, what determines a 'nuisance'? Any advice?

Not a thing you can do about it. As long as it is taxed, MOT'ed and insured, then they can park wherever they want for as long as they want, barring any parking restrictions, of course.

A car parked outside your house is not a nuisance.

I live at the bottom of a cul de sac , and accept that parking outside the house is not always possible , but what really does my head in is , when some of the people in my avenue , whom have 2 & 3 cars at their house , try and cram them in leaving no room for anyone else , ie , me , with our 1 car .

My girlfriends Mum lives in a permit road not far from Liscard.

Now what pisses me off to the extreme is when these 3 car families park them ALL on the road and leave their driveway empty!

Whenever I go round there, I always park over their driveway as there is never anywhere else to park.

Unless there's a parking restriction on the road (i.e. residents permits) there's nothing that you can do about a car with valid road tax and insurance parking outside your house.

In the past some sort of understanding would of developed between neighbours about this sort of thing but now that there's loads more cars on the road it gets harder and harder to keep reasonable and it only takes one person to be selfish and the whole thing gos wrong.

It's not limited to old houses eiher, our house was new in 2007 and they've got garages but they're too small to get a can in and still get out of it so everyone parks in the road!

You now know why properties with off-road parking cost more than those without. The roads are PUBLIC roads, not private roads. Although I do understand your frustration, there is absolutely nothing you can do legally.

Have you tried having a conversation with your neighbours?

It's the dangerous parkers that get me, right up on the junction so that you can't see around the vehicles to see what's coming, just so they don't have to walk a few extra yards. Then on top of that they ditch their crap out of the car outside someone elses house (not mine fortunately). Most of it is a case of people just being selfish and not caring about anyone else. Parking cars in a garage? that's a novelty.

There's some inconsiderate people who park on my road during the day to go to work/shops. Parking over peoples drives. Leaving very very tight gaps...
Fortunately I have a driveway, a bull bar and mountains of torque...

Ya can't get 3 permits as far as I am aware so one car might have a copy or no permit or borrowing one from another neighbour, all fineable cases.
