This Man Found His Neighbor’s Car Parked in His Driveway, They Refused to Move Because They Were Disabled so He Blocked Them in With His Car

A neighborhood altercation occurred after the man’s neighbor’s father parked in his driveway and refused to move, explaining that he needed to park there for his disability. Is he in the wrong to make him move?

The man lives on a road with no council services such as street sweeping, gritting and bin collection. He added, “There are only three houses on the street, mine being the one in the middle.”

His neighbor’s garden backs onto the garden of another property on the next street which has parking restrictions. He added, “We got new tenants, and returning from work one day, found a car parked across my driveway, I reversed off the road and parked on the next street and waited till the driver moved it.”

He later knocked on their door and explained that the road is private, belonging to the three houses on the street. He explained “The woman got defensive and said it was her father that was visiting and he is disabled and needs to park close as he has mobility problems.”

He tried to explain again but she was not happy. A week later, he noticed that same car parked across his driveway. He said, “I decided to park behind it and go and speak with my neighbor as I was now blocking her drive and explained what I was doing, and she was happy with my plan.”

There was a knock at his door and it was the woman’s father with one crutch. He added, “He immediately starts screaming at me how dare I park my car behind him and block him in, when he is disabled and could need to go to hospital any moment.”

The Situation Escalated

The man was going to be pleasant and explain to him that he wasn’t allowed to park there but because he was getting screamed at, he decided to say that he would move the car when he was ready, and closed the door. The disabled man started to kick at his door and half an hour later two Community Support Officers turned up.

He explained, “They then started threatening to have my car towed. This is where I decide to get brave and respond by saying they can go ahead and order it because I know that no reputable company would tow my car.”

He Later Clarified the Situation

Later, they agreed that he would move his car and the disabled man would move his car to the field next to the road. He added, “The ‘gentleman’ by this point must have got very angry as he slams his car into reverse and sets off so quickly he nearly knocks one of the officers over, but doesn’t stop and continues to drive away.”

Was He in the Wrong?

Was he wrong to refuse to move the car? Should he have handled the situation differently?

He Turned to the Internet for Advice

One person commented, “Being disabled gives you certain courtesies when parking, but doesn’t give you the right to park anywhere. Blocking a resident’s driveway is a big no no. If it wasn’t an un-adopted road you could easily have had him towed immediately.” 

Another User Commented

“I live in a densely populated urban area with scarce street parking, and people’s entitlement to other people’s privately owned driveways and deeded parking spots boggles the mind. Just because they have needs, nobody else exists to them.” 

Someone Shared Their Opinion

“I’m not totally clear on the layout here but why can he not park in his daughter’s parking spot? The onus is on the tenant to make room for guests without inconveniencing other tenants.”

Another person agreed with this point. “Yeah… why didn’t your neighbor park her own car in the field so her disabled father could park on her drive? Surely that’s what any decent person would do!”

Another Person Gave Their Perspective

“As a physically disabled individual myself I find it a struggle to make my way in life sometimes. The world is not very suited for me. And yet a big thing I don’t do is expect sacrifices from people. If someone wants to help me then I’ll take it if I have to, but that doesn’t mean I’m entitled enough to expect it.”
