How To Handle Inconsiderate and Hazardous Parking Obstructions


Not every driver is as considerate or as safe as you might be, so there are going to be cases where you’ll experience some pretty not-so-great parking situations. Nope, don’t lose your cool and do something stupid, because that can actually turn out to be a really bad situation. Follow these tips and deal with inconsiderate and hazardous parking the right way.


If a vehicle is parked in the public road in such a way that it may cause an obstruction, damage or harm to another vehicle or a pedestrian, then you should make sure and contact the police as quickly as possible.


You should also make a report to the police if there is a vehicle parked in front of a driveway, preventing access to or from it. A parked car that is obstructing the curb is no different either. Call the authorities – they will be able to locate the owner of the vehicle and take the necessary actions to rectify the problem.


To ensure that you give the authorities all the necessary information in relation to your complaint, you should offer them what’s on the list below:

  • Name/email/address
  • Phone number
  • Obstructing vehicle’s location
  • Make, model and color of the vehicle
  • Registration number of the vehicle
  • Details about the vehicle’s suspected owner or registered keeper
