We have some time as my back up plan is to wait until Oct 1 and contact DMV . Their registration is out then and they will be removed for me . I was just hoping there was a way to let them know they should move that crappy truck from in front of my house sooner. They live right across the street from me as far as I know. my house is the prettiest one here in the ghetto but I really wish simple manners were taught these days . If you are unable to give me a different approach -their lack of manners will be expensive ! Oh well .

Hello, my name is Greg.

Is there a way you could put a note on the windshield of the car asking for them to contact you so you can discuss the issue. It is possible that they are not aware that they are hindering your guests ability to park. This is the first thing that I would try.

If it is parked in front of your home for a lengthy period of time, you can also contact the police department (using non-emergency number) and let them know that a car has been sitting in front of your house for a lengthy period of time and you would like it checked as a possible abandoned vehicle. They will then followup on the car.

If they do move the car at times, wait until they have moved it and place your own car there for a period of time. They might then get the message that you are needing that space - maybe they assume that you do not need that parking space.

Have you tried contacting your local city hall and/or the street department in your local town/city? Finding out the city code in your community on parking rules on city streets may give you some leverage on having this vehicle moved.

My name isXXXXX am going to offer a different answer so you can see what best fits your style of communication. No matter what you potentially might choose to escalate the situation(with town or city or what have you) the very first step that will probably be recommended to you is talking with him first.

Without knowing the type of parking arrangement or the way the housing is set up its hard to make a custom answer based on that.

I can tell you however that honesty is the best policy especially with regards XXXXX XXXXX and communication is needed to be honest from the beginning.

I would merely let him know that you need the space for your guests, and that you need the space open because you never know when the guests will be showing up. Let him know that it means a lot to you that your guests can park on your property and that he probably wouldn't want your guests parking on his space because your own space was taken up by him, or having his guests parking on your property because you parked in his space.

So basically just ask him if would mind not parking there because of courtesy to your guests you want them to park by your house, especially in the case of unloading or elderly. Just calming, nicely express this to him, and let him know you would never want your guests parking in front of his house out of courtesy to him and his guests.

Honesty, and being straight forward is the best policy. Communication is key with neighbors.

Thank you but I live in the ghetto and here is an example of neighborly communication . The guy that used to live in the rented quad plex next to my single family mortgage house worked on cars . My friend could not start her car . He offered to have a look at it . He could not start it and after 30 minutes at most gave up and went home . This neighbor then had his kids taunt my dogs when ever I went to work as I then lived alone .I videotaped his kids throwing rocks at my dogs trying to get bitten ! He apparently had wanted mre to give him 20$ for the work that did not fix someone else's car . But he never even asked me to pay him . He thought he could get his kid bitten and sue me ! I will never confront a ghetto neighbor again . By doing nothing until the 1st when his tags expire he has been there 3 weeks and will not suspect me so it will cost him dearly but it is not on me .

Please clarify: does he move / use the car every day?
Expert:  SpecialistMichael replied 1 year ago.
Well it sounds like there are a few separate issues regardless of the friend's car and the dog with children issues, the fact you do not want to talk to the neighbor is pretty simple.

I think your choice is easy if you do not want to confront the neighbor. Simply let the people who are responsible for clearing the streets do so. When the car is moved. Then casually start parking there.

Simply alert the highway department, parking authority or the DMV that the tags are expired or soon to be, or ask how long the action takes when you report something and do so on that timeframe. Either way the vehicle will be moved for you, because it sounds like it wouldn't otherwise be moved under its own power anyway.

Chances are he will either realize his tags are expired and move it OR the car will be towed thus freeing up your space for your guests.

Its Mike,

I just wanted to follow up and make another suggestion.

I would imagine a towing company might look at that as an opportunity to retrieve some money from the owner.

Depending upon the level of frustration you have with the current situation, it might be worthwhile to call a couple of local towing and storage companies, just to see if they would be interested in the bounty of retrieving the car back once the owner realize the car has been towed.

The other option would actually be having a towing company casually approach the vehicle and seeing if they could influence him(based not on your relationship with the car or the owner) to move the vehicle "due to the length of time the vehicle has been sitting parked" or something to that effect.

You might be able to casually or anonymously request the towing company to approach the vehicle owner because it literally has been sitting in the in the street for so long.
