Parking Is Always A Contentious Topic
Netizens criticized the car owner’s reckless actions which were considered extreme.
They also considered the action as invading someone else’s property.
Some said such situations do happen often especially if the host is rarely at home.
How Do I Stop People From Parking Next To My House?
A way to prevent someone from parking in your space or blocking your driveway is to put up signs & traffic cones.
To be effective, you can put up a “No Parking” signs and traffic cones to act as a deterrent to people who park in front of your house.
Since public roads are just that, “public,” no one has the right to reserve spaces in front of his or her house.
However, while it is not illegal to park in front of someone else’s house, it is certainly inconsiderate.
On another hand, the act of “reserving” a parking spot is a criminal offence under Section 50(3) of the Road Transport Act 1987.
