Thanks for the good thoughts Andrea and Ana. I'm still not sure what to do. There has GOT to be some reason they ALL are parking down here when they used to ALL park right in front of their place or closest to it where the neighbor didn't mind.
All the spots are EMPTY by their 'apartments'. It's just so weird. It's like they are doing it on purpose. I even went out and walked up the street to see if something was wrong with the area where they used to park. Found nothing. All clear, no obstacles, nothing. I'm baffled.
I'm really hesitating doing anything. Ana's right, retaliation or just plain nastiness could ensue. Our city has the 72 hour rule to prevent people from just dumping vehicles at the curb for months. It used to be a real problem with junk vehicles or just plain not registered. So they made the laws.
We even have a special city division that will come out, mark the car, tell them to move it and then tow it if they don't comply. I might just sit on this for another week, then call and let the SUV get towed. Heck, it's not my problem if they choose to let the registration run out and then 'hide' it in plain sight by moving another car almost on its bumper to hide the expired plate. Very obvious to me, but then I'm a reincarnation of Sherlock.
Sitting, stewing, feeling a bit less depressed about it all. Can't last forever and I do have legal avenues to follow. I really don't want to KNOW any of those people who live there. The manager is nasty, the tenants live in crappy conditions. I think the guy just subdivided more rooms hence the extra cars.
At 500 bucks a pop, no questions asked, rents to anyone who has CASH, it's no wonder we have problems with drug dealers, domestic violence calls all the time, police with arrest warrants, prostitution (they do it out front of my house and the one next door.) Very obvious. I try not to look. Embarrassing.
Calming myself. Anyone have a good Mantra I can borrow?
