  • This car has been parked in this same position for well over 48 hours, with the drive EMPTY. Forcing pedestrians to walk round and potentially slipping on the mud or snow (now gone). Pedestrians with prams have a difficult time negotiating round, elderly people (as evidenced) are not too impressed. It is unacceptable selfish behaviour by the owner of the property.
