The miscreant hadn't turned up by the time I finished for the day, but I went for a coffee after work, and looked in on the way home and the car was gone. The centre user got a lift from another centre user in the end, but she would have had to come in the next day to retrieve her car.

We were thinking of fitting a padlock to the gate, but then staff could be constantly getting up and down to let people in and out - and the office is not staffed all the time and some groups have early morning or late evening sessions, so we would have to get loads of keys cut.

If the charity was rich, which it isn't - it is a Lola group we could consider fitting a barrier - but as the premises are leased that might not be allowed and I don't know if planning permission would be needed.

What annoys us more is that the miscreant has a small car, and he could very easily tuck it into a corner instead of parking diagonally across two cars.

"This time he has blocked in one of the centre users, who attends the local deaf support group. Their meeting finished half an hour ago, and the user, who is profoundly deaf may have to just wait here most of the day, and she is very distressed."

Until such time as effective action to deter the pest is taken, I think the centre needs to begin informing it's vulnerable visitors that there is a risk they may be stranded there for several hours when parking at the centre.

IIRC under English law you can tow the car but at only at the landowner's expense.

Due to sharp practice by some commercial car park operators the law as recently been changed to "protect" motorists who leave their vehicles on somebody elses land without permission.

The handicap space incident was in Israel, I believe.

Richard needs legal measures, however.

As a former landlady, I propose a sign that says "Residents' parking only, all others will be towed at their own risk and expense". And then call the towing company and have the blasted thing removed whenever it is illegally parked on her property.

In Ottawa, the towing company gets paid by the miscreant when s/he reclaims the feloniously misparked car. I'm sure there areBritish towing firms that offer the same service.

An incident was briefly reported a few days ago in which a crew arrived and painted "handicapped parking" symbols around a car parked in the previously "anybody can park here" parking space and a few minutes later a tow truck arrived and towed the "illegally parked" car (that didn't have a handicap tag).

Someone caught the entire sequence (presumedly with a phone cam) and the video was reportedly "viral" almost immediately, possibly on YouTube or on one (or several) of the tweetntwat networks.

I didn't make notes, so all I can offer as to the location is that it wasn't in a Western European country or in a "new world" region.

We had this problem regularly at a place I once worked where neighbours from the adjacent block of flats would occupy our parking spaces, despite signs pointing out that they were reserved for employees. One of my colleagues printed off a little leaflet and stuck it under the offenders' wipers. It announced that the offending parker had just won £1,000 in a radio draw and needed to call a certain number to acquire his/her prize.

When they called the number they received an earful from said colleague telling them if they parked in our spaces again then their motors would be towed away. It worked wonders.

If someone is so inconsiderate as to park blocking someone else in, they may also be the sort of person to leave a dog suffering from the heat in the boot (US=trunk). Smash a window so you can check for that poor dog.
As you've had to smash the window you may as well let the handbrake off, and roll the car aside, whie you're at it!

Howard, that's a brilliant idea!

I own a couple of flats that are adjacent to the local hospital (Wythenshawe in South Manchester). Hospital staff and hospital visitors use my car park rather than the Pay & Display hospital car park.

A sign 'Residents Parking Only' has helped hugely although there are still some who push their luck. They usually find their cars are either blocked in by residents, and / or find a polite note stuck to their windscreen. It's worked quite well.

Right, time to buy some Tupperware containers!

According to this:

UK property law website

if it is causing an obstruction then it is a police matter. However if they decline to take action you cannot force them to do so, although threatening to go to the local press may persuade them.

Plan B is to put a tupperware lunch box underneath the car and call the Bomb Squad. They'll come and blow the car up.

Oddly, I need to research this issue in the near future for a (non-paying) client who is suffering from the owners of nearby properties parking on her private forecourt so that she cannot use it and in the accessway (a no-parking right of way) to her garage, so she cannot use that either. Apparently the worst offender is the arrogant apparently Nigerian tenant of one of the owners of an adjoining property (who roundly regrets ever having let to him).

So if anyone has got any SENSIBLE suggestions about how to deter offenders IN ACCORDANCE WITH ENGLISH LAW, I will check them at the same time and may even adopt the suggestions.

hi

Glad things appear to be sorted but the advice from the members who said " bump it" is sound. Used to do it almost every day when I worked in London.

I always found that their were plenty of kind volunteers to help.

It used to be a regularly done thing there. Of course if I found people in the same situation I would return the favour.

I once helped an eighty year-old lady get her bloody big Jag out so that she could get home. All on my own too!!

No idea how long ago this was posted: my action would be to call the local news agency and local TV stations, explain the situation and see if you can set up a news-mediated confrontation with the offender when he/she returns to their car.

Also call the police - supine and useless as they tend to be in matters of this nature, the prospect of Press/TV action might get them off their butts to oversee matters and prevent things getting out of hand.

And then: name and shame! Make up posters, put them in shops local to the offender's home. Take photos, write to the local press, all that.

Or - pay a removal company to have the car moved, then immobilise it until the offender has reimbursed you for the cost of doing this. Sue them if necessary, or get an injunction preventing further trespass.

But under no circumstances take any action that's going to put you in the wrong, don't damage the vehicle or assault the driver.

Where I used to live there is a one-way street that is a bus route - parking is permitted on one side only.

One day three cars were parked on the other side making just not quite wide enough for the bus to squeeze through. The bus driver requested that everyone on board closed their eyes whilst he drove down the street removing the wing mirrors of each of the offending vehicles.

He received a rousing cheer from everybody!

I have found that a few 10penny nails are a very effective way of discouraging this sort of slob. If she had to take transport to get where she as going, a nail angled so that each tire would puncture itself as the creep backed out would start a leak and still allow the person to leave the lot prior to deaeration. It might take a time or two but eventually the message will reach into that dim mind that their behavior was undesireable.

Let the punishment fit the crime.

Slight thread drift, but another of my dear friends was summoned to the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital (when it used to be in the city centre) because her elderly, terribly ill husband had taken a turn for the worse and was actually dying. She drove into the car park and there wasn't a space, so she left the car on the end of a row, causing no obstruction. Just as she was locking the car, the Attendant came up and told her she couldn't park there. In a dreadful state she explained it was an emergency, her husband was about to pass away, but he actually said in a very aggressive tone "I don't care about that, you'll have to move your car!" Can you imagine? She quite rightly told him where to go and rushed into the building. her husband died fifteen minutes later. She got a ticket, but I wrote on her behalf explaining the situation and they waived the fine. Awful experience.

SPB-Coperator. Kneecapping isn't my style at all I'm afraid, Anyway, it would have been a sackable offence. The best approach was simply to stonewall. IE., stand there and refuse to budge whilst giving them the stock replies. "I'm not allowed to rescind a parking ticket once it's been issued". "If you feel you have a case, then you'll have to take it up with the council within the next seven days. After that, the penalty charge doubles." And just watch them getting madder and madder.

Not that I was without compassion of course. I remember booking a car which had been ilegally parked in a disabled bay. As I was leaving the car park, I was approached by a very distraught young couple. Their daughter had been taken ill and they were rushing to get to the doctor before the surgery closed, and the disabled bay was the only space left available.

I told them to take the notice to the council along with a covering letter and my Man No, and that I'd make a report out repeating what they'd told me. I never heard any more, but I sincerely hope they didn't get penalised.

I think a bunch of helpful answers are mostly aimed at fantasies-- things we'd dream of doing. They mostly aren't realistic, and they certainly won't help someone who just wants to move their car.

I once had somebody make a left hand turn in front of me, in a 55 mph speed limit area. I knew I couldn't slow enough to miss her, so I stomped on the accelerator, and when I got past her, the brakes. I had a seat belt on, and so did the two kids I was driving... to visit their father in the hospital, in HIS car. There was a "U" driveway on the right, and I hit it, still slowing down. I stopped, and the other drive pulled in the driveway entrance I'd just gone into. We were all OK, and I got out of the car, and walked back to the other car, with all sorts of ides running through my head, mostly involving swearing and yelling.

Now, those of you who've been advocating venting in some form, what would you have done? I was driving someone else's children in someone else's car, and a head-on collision or a T-bone might have killed us all. The other driver was wrong.

What happened was I walked back to the driver's side of the other car, and saw an elderly woman (late 60s, maybe) drained white and shaking like a leaf. All thoughts of yelling at her disappeared. The first words out of her mouth were to apologize. She'd been looking in her rear-view mirror for some reason. I talked to her a while, and let her know we were all OK, and I said I'd stay with her for a little while. She got a bit more steady. So did I.

The point is, you can have these little fantasies, but if they make it out of your head and into real life, they won't make one damned thing better.

The person wanted to get her car out and go home. That's ALL.

At Napier University in Edinburgh (don't know if they still do it) if anyone parked where they shouldn't they did get a very big and VERY adhesive sticker stuck on their car, saying they were in the wrong place (happened to my son!) Warm water at any price would NOT take these stickers off! it took hours of scraping, risking scratching the windscreen, or industrial solvents to get the stuff off. VERY effective at stopping people parking in the same place again!

I agree Charmion, but that could work out very expensive. From Norwich city centre to our village is about £25 for example, not a small amount to someone on a budget.

The other peope working there were myself, and a disalbed person in her 70s, and I am not in the habit of carrying dollies (whatever they are) on the bus in case they are needed.

I one saw a Fire Crew 'bumping' a badly-parked car out of the way on a side street. It was sticking out a bit and the fire engine couldn't pass through. The men bounced it up and down, pushing it along and to one side.

Jacqui.c-When someone is taken ill, it can be dangerous not to proceed.

Not to put to fine a point on it, but there is a legal and moral duty to rescue. I would not like to discover that a loved one was left to suffer because no one could work their way around an improperly parked car.
