A Man Parked in Front of His Neighbors House, He Explained It Was Legal but It Left Him Feeling Morally Conflicted

After a year living in their condo, a man and his roommates found themselves in a challenging situation due to lack of parking which led to issues with their neighbor. Here is what the man had to say:

The Man Moved Into A New Condo

The man said, “A year ago, my roommate chose to buy a condo and invited me and my other roommate (his brother) to move in with him. The condo had the space, and his rent was incredibly generous. The only concern about his new condo was the parking.”

They Had An Initial Parking Agreement

Upon moving in, it was understood that parking on the yellow-marked curbs was acceptable. This informal agreement seemed to suit everyone, as every condo dweller had more than one vehicle, and parking space was at a premium.

But Problems Arose

Neighbors, having experienced similar parking problems, said that they hadn’t encountered any issues over the past three years. Therefore, for a year, the arrangement appeared to work smoothly, until about two months ago.

The man explained, “The entire street was ticketed, including me. Luckily, they decided to turn those tickets into warnings. I learned this after visiting to find out where we were supposed to park. I was told I needed to find areas not marked off with yellow.”

Everyone Was Fighting For Spaces

The man added, “Those tickets are still being handed out if you are unlucky enough to be parked when a cop drives by. Our complex provides a single parking space for guests (we’ve been able to squeeze two spots out of it). Everyone is fighting for these spots, and there are just too many cars.”

He Parked On His Neighbor’s Property

The man explained that a neighboring homeowner had a space in front of his house but lacked a curb. He had initially put up signs declaring the area private property and warning of towing for unauthorized parkers. These signs, however, had since fallen, and the man decided to park there one day.

It Sparked A Confrontation

When he returned to his parked car, the man found that the neighbor had left an annoyed note on his car. The note threatened to tow if he parked there again. However, having gathered information from various sources, including the local Parking Commission, the non-emergency police line, and the referenced towing company, the man was confident that parking on the street was legal as long as he didn’t encroach on the homeowner’s property.

A Parking Dispute Emerged

When the man parked in front of the neighbor’s house once more, a confrontation ensued. The man explained what happened next: “So I parked there again and just happened to run into him. He told me to move. I explained my situation calmly, but pretty sternly, and that I had learned it was legal for me to park there so long as I wasn’t on his property.”

Was The Man In The Wrong?

In response, the neighbor called him a jerk and stormed off, saying that he would call the sheriff and the city. The man told him that was his right, but he was certain he hadn’t done anything wrong. However, the man began to question his decision; he explained, “Now I feel guilty as the night goes on. I know it’s not good etiquette to park in front of someone else’s house. But it’s the only option we have left that’s legal. But legal doesn’t always mean morally right.”

The Internet Responded

One person said, “If it’s a public road and you aren’t blocking or impeding on his property in any way, then I say it’s fair game.”

Another Person Commented

Another person said, “It’s only poor etiquette to park in front of someone else’s house when you have open and accessible parking in front of your own home. You don’t have that.”
