Getting nowhere on my big plan to get rid of those cars out front. While I'm drafting some 'notes' to put on windshields, another car pulled up. She had been parked way down in front of HER place, but went out to get something and when she returned she parked directly behind the other two already there. Now I have no parking left in front of my house and PLENTY of parking across and in front of the place they ALL live. I'm doomed!

How about some of the famous GB positive thoughts sent my way to make this all better? I just can't win I think.

To be perfectly honest Sorta, if I was legally parked and someone asked me not to park on the street in front of their house, I would probably tell all my friends and make sure they'd never have their spot free. lol I used to play parking wars when I lived in the city and anyone who thought they "owned a public spot" were definitely tormented by all.

However, I will indeed send positive thoughts you get your spot back.

Sorta, I live in an area that has an HOA, and in our rules, it specifies no parking our cars on the street. The owners across the street from me had a guy re-doing their kitchen and he would continually park in front of my house for hours. I started getting letters from the HOA to stop parking cars in front of my house, so I crossed the street and rang the doorbell and asked them to tell the guy to park elsewhere because the HOA was giving me grief. They weren't happy about that, but they did it.
If your city has rules about overnight street parking, the only thing you can do is continually report it to the city and make a stink about it and make the city enforce it. If you ask the drivers to stop, you'll never get them to move. They consider it public property. As long as you don't own the ground they're parking on, unfortunately you can do nothing. And it may get worse by far.
Hoping for the best though.

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? rotfl

Yay Nan!! Have fun!

They closed our Xpressway and main street due to icing over and accidents. It's all on bridges and is famous for black ice. Other than that it looks pretty out there with the snow.

Monday is coming to a close...tomorrow will be a high of 32. eek
