So basically, where I live is pretty much a suburb. In the middle of nowhere. 10 Minutes to the nearest gas station. Housing bubble hit us hard, as all the developers pulled out, and left our nice little planned out town thing out to dry. Anyways, as a result of this, the old lady across the street got foreclosed on(she lost her job, couldn't get the bank to work with her, she's old enough her credit doesn't really matter so she moved in with her boyfriend). Her house was on the corner, so we basically had a blank fence in front of our house. (her house faced <-- the house behind her faced --> and we face ^)

Months go by. During this period, my family acquires 2 new cars, for a grand total of 6. The plan was, when I got my Camaro, we were going to get rid of 2 of these cars, but then the camaro broke (forcing us to keep one car for me to drive), and my dad has been rather lazy in getting the other one hauled away. So, we currently have 1 car in the garage, 2 in the drive way, one directly in front, and park the remaining 2 directly across the street, next to the aforementioned blank fence. there's room for ~8 cars to be parked on this blank patch of street, two can be parked in front, 4 in back. The important number is the former. Not really a problem for anyone.

New neighbors move in across the street. They have a grand total of 4 cars. Shouldn't be a problem right? 2 in the driveway, one out front, one parked beside the house (in front of our cars). Heck, they even have an empty house across the street. They have a grand total of 8 spaces they could possibly use, without anyone getting bothered. 4 cars, 8 spaces. Remember that. INSTEAD, however, they somehow got the idea, that the blank stretch was THEIRS. This is where they start getting all durp durp retarded. They put one car in their driveway. They have a big truck, and a couple midsized SUV's (a lexus and a hyundai). Granted, I wouldn't wanna try fitting a truck of that size and an SUV onto said driveway, but uh, there 4th car? A Geo Metro. I can fit that thing on my big toenail. Still, this shouldn't be a problem. 4 cars, 8 spaces right? Well, for some reason, they're trying to train us not to park out cars along their fence. So they put 3 cars there. Leaving no car in front of their house.

Ok, we get it, you don't like us parking there. Too bad it's a public street. We've already assured them it won't be a problem in a little while, as my camaro is getting fixed, and my mom is getting rather annoyed the other car hasn't been taken care of. patience is all we ask. Not too unreasonable. Today, I finally got tired, and parked my van right in front of their house.

Sorry for the rather long rant...

Uhhhh....yeah...parents street is like that. City ordinace says you can't park on grass, and so my parents can't legally park out back 'cause all the gravel is covered with grass.

neighbors with concrete driveways.....still parking on the dang street. So we have to fight for spaces. I wanna park in their driveways.

Unless you live in a private community of some sort, you or your neighbors do not have a legal right to any parking spaces at the curb/in the street in front of or around your house. That said, most LE will attempt to persuade neighbors to park in front of their own homes, especially in areas where street parking is very limited.

Some communities, especially private ones, have restrictions on how many cars can be on the street that belong to persons residing within the home on said street. Similar restrictions exist for the number of cars in the driveway of a home, and how long a car may be kept in a driveway in an inoperable condition. Some communities won't even let you wash your car in your own driveway or front lawn.


It can get pretty ugly when people become unneighborly...flat tires and unexplainable scratch marks or dents suddenly become common.

my neighbors have 7 cars, 5 they can stick in their driveway..

but for some reasons.. when it snows... they park their 2 other cars they cant fit in the driveway in front of my house..

once in a while i dont care il park my car out in front of their house and leave it there for weeks.. one time when i had a bad power steering leak i purposely went out every other day and filled it up so it would keep leaking in front of their house so it looks trashy.. waste of money? yea i knew it was.. but i freaking hate my neighbors.. i got something in mind for them next year though if they are still here..

im sure they have some left over $$ from when they had illegals living with them..

its not hard to figure it out if the slap drywall in the garage and the garage door never opens..

plus the people behind me to the right got someone living in their garage now... i catch him once in a while peeing on the side of the garage..
