I hear ya on this one. I have great neighbors on each side. One occasionally parks in front of our house because their area is limited due to a fire hydrant in front of theirs and we live on a T shaped intersection. I have always thought the person who's house it is has first dibs on the curb parking. Again, those folks I don't mind, I'd rather have them park there than the endless stream of people coming and going from the house across the streat. The neighbors on our other side, great people, but the have a stream of crappy cars at any given time with one pickup being the constant. There is room for two cars per curb, but with the truck and one crappy car, they sort of go over into our driveway such that it does make it tight backing out. Add to that when DH parks his Suburban on the apron of our driveway (the part between the sidewalk and curb) I can't see worth a dang. On a REALLY good day, the neighbors across from us (who I tried to say hi to, that don't answer back,and whose tween daughter and "friend" thought it was funny to throw glass out into the street at dusk one night -I called the cops since they almost hit my car) will sometimes park a truck with trailer directly opposite of our driveway opening. Which, if I am not wrong, is illegal in the driving rules I learned from the book I got from the state of ND - because if a car's brake gave out and rolled back, that car opposite the driveway could get hit and simply for the fact it takes away backing out room for that person.
It seems the girls on the corner have graduated college so I imagine the traffic will be less. One of the parent's rents it to her and her friends (which I am not totally sure that is allowed in our area-ie. rental zoning rules). They tended to not move their cars during snow storms and their friends park all over heck when the party. Luckily they never were really loud, it just stunk if I had company or simply just getting around the corner to my own darn house
And the people across from us have alley access, geez people! So, in a nutshell, I just deal and harp on DH when he parks on the lawn.
