A woman who was tired of her neighbors parking their cars in front of her driveway took action to have her cars towed – enraging her.
Explaining her story on Reddit, the woman said her neighbors are one big family of five to six cars together, and they often had their vehicles parked right across from their driveway, meaning she can’t get her own car in and out of the street if he must.
After begging them to move their cars away to no avail, the woman wrote a harshly worded letter to the family’s landlord, and eventually they listened – but instead began parking their cars in front of people’s garages and on the access road that runs between the houses.
in the her postshe said, “I live in a really cramped neighborhood that has an access road between two rows of houses. The street runs behind one group of houses and in front of another. I live in the back row of houses.

“A very large family with 5-6 cars lives next to me. They used to park right behind my driveway so my fiancé and I couldn’t even get out of the driveway. They used to park too so nobody could use the street, and they ended up parking in front of people’s garages so they couldn’t enter.
“I went to her house and knocked on the door several times to ask her not to park directly behind us or anyone. They didn’t listen. I emailed the owner of the house telling her to ask her tenants to park appropriately and at one point I even got into an argument with one of them because we were trying to walk and they weren’t moving .
“It got better for a while, they stopped parking behind us and they also stopped parking all 6 of their cars on the access road.”
Recently the family had a party and again blocked the road and since then they have continued to park in awkward spots – leading to the woman taking action and calling a tow truck.
She added: “They had a party a few weeks ago and they blocked the road. Again I emailed the owner and left them a message basically saying they will be towed next time.
“For about two weeks they have parked one of their cars and blocked off two garages. Not blocking completely, but enough so that the people using these garages can’t park in their garage and it basically blocks the street with a snowball effect.
“So this morning they were parked back there and I finally called the tow truck. I could hear and see them very frustrated because they had to go somewhere, but I feel like I’ve warned them enough times that it’s warranted at this point.
“I’d rather never have anyone towed away, but they don’t seem to care about the neighborhood.”
Commenters on the Reddit post supported the woman’s actions, with many of them saying she waited much longer before taking action than they would have in their position.
One person said: “I would have had her towed the first time I couldn’t leave or enter my property.”
While another added: “If they’re blocking driveways and other houses’ garages, it sucks to be them. They had multiple opportunities to stop.”
And a third wrote: “You have been told over and over again not to park there. I think it will take a lot of inconvenience and money to get their attention.”
