Angry This is why vehicles shouldn't block the sidewalk

Everyone

Please be consider of others when parking. I am handicapped and to block a sidewalk is rude and illegal. I told the parents that if their children respect others I expect the parents to. Actually it is rude to anyone who is walking down the sidewalk. Their is also a fire hydrate. The parent made the mistake of saying I didn't matter. This happened on Gibbes Court near Capstone.

I don't think drivers of parked cars would like it if I blocked the rear of their car 'for a minute' so they couldn't back out of the driveway.

I left plenty of room for you to go around behind my truck and get onto the other sidewalk without getting off the pavement.






J/k. Not really my truck.

Agree 1000%. Not only for the handicapped aspect, but in our condo complex the sidewalks are right along the road so when I walk my 2 dogs we have to go into the street to get around the 4-5 yahoos who can't see fit to pull all the way into their driveways. Fortunately it's not a busy street but occasionally cars come around the corner quickly so the potential for danger is there


And yes I've e-mailed the condo association about it but apparently it's not an important issue.

I know this is a serious issue and agree with you JB about the potential for danger but have you ever seen "Malibu's Most Wanted?" That is all I could think of after reading this:

B-Rad: But you heard them laughing. I ain't nothing but a busta.

Shondra: They just don't understand you. None of them know how hardcore it is up in Malibu.

B-Rad-Yeah?

Shondra-Yeah! With the traffic......and the sharks. Y'all got sharks!

B-Rad - And when the public be all up on your private beach?

Shondra - Right. Right.

Set a couple of those bad boys on fire and I bet it will jump to the top of the condo association's next agenda...... that's how I roll.

Not really the same, but this asshole parked dead in the middle of two parking spots at the store tonight. So, I took as many shopping carts as I could find, and put them around his car.

I park far out at the end but do sometimes take 2 spots because I respect the money I spent on my truck but others don't respect what's mine I have found out the hard way. I don't think surrounding the car with carts is a good idea if someone respects their ride enough to take 2 spots they will likely be pretty angry if they see you putting carts around it.

It's possible the owner of the red truck had no clue he was in the sidewalk looks to me he was just focused on not being to close to the car in front of him. Anyone who has ever parked a truck or car on a hill knows it jumps a little forward initially when you are about to reverse. On that hill much closer to the other car and he hits it on his way out.

Down here I've seen people take out their keys and go all Garcia on vehicles that did that.

This guy parked right up front. He may respect his ride, but he obviously had no respect for other people. He was just being a douche bag.

Sorry but you have no right to be a jerk and take up 2 parking spaces because someone might hit your car. 99% of all drivers don't hit parked cars but you don't need to be selfish by making your car more important than courtesy to other people who would like to park.

I've never keyed a car and have no desire to. But it's people that take up 2 spaces out of complete and total selfishness that have actually put the thought in my head.

Why did they put a sidewalk in a community that doesn't have adequate parking?

Default Re: This is why vehicles shouldn't block the sidewalk

My drive way is shorter than my truck. City Code here states the max setback from the inside edge of the sidewalk to the house must be '15 feet. My F-150 is 17.75' long. Not much I can do about that. IMHO, the setback needs to be longer, but as we all know the city caves to developers when writing the ordinances....
