I actually saw somebody do that on sunday (not a yid), and I thought it was extremely childish. Somebody double parked in front of his car so he expendied a TON more effort to shovel out his car and dump conviently place it on every inch of the car blocking him. It must have taken him a good extra half hour or more.
IMHO whatever effort a person is going to expend on a spot after having dug one out already should be towards a new one. This is the reality of living in a city where you don't own a spot.
[This has nothing to do with OP's question where the area in question is actually to some degree "owned"]

You spend an extra half hour today, and the guy learns his lesson.
Save hours later.
Live forever or die trying.

The only problem is that it's not "the guy" I literally have my driveway blocked once a week. It's always a new car...

Does anyone else on your block have this problem? Do people realize it's a driveway? I have seen signs by people's driveways saying to not block it.

A. Most of the people I know who have driveways experience the same. Some more some less, depends on the area (I live around the corner of a big Shul).
B. If they don't have vision problems they should. It's quite obvious.
C. I have a sign.

No Buts -

Your own private driveway you can park a few cars on
cars can't park on street thereby can't block your driveway
Affordable housing with cheap taxes
Streets and sidewalks plowed quickly especially in Beachwood
Mild summers
What did I leave out????

Take 'em with you. And I'm sure employment opportunities abound there!

Anyone knows if a driveway has to have a no parking sign in order to be a legal driveway?  I got a ticket for blocking partially someone driveway but it doesn't have a non parking sign.
It doesn't need a sign. The same eyes that can see a sign, can see a driveway. Like a pump doesn't need a sign.

Not to offend you but how did you justify blocking?

Well,  my car was blocking it by just 1 feet,  he had space to get out.
Easy to say that when you're trying to park, but often even that one foot makes it very difficult if not impossible to get out
Don't ask stupid questions and you won't get stupid answers

Spray yellow lines on the street (just make sure no one is looking) it makes it look scarier to park
I'm not who you think I am.
