Watta You Do When Someone Blocks Your Driveway?
« on: May 10, 2013, 04:47:30 PM »
Anyone living in Brooklyn knows how annoying it is when someone leaves their car right in front of your driveway for an extended period of time.
Some people leave notes on the windshield requesting that the car not be left there again. I find that not to be effective so today when someone blocked my neighbor's driveway for like the hundredth time I colored all over the windows with window markers:)... hope they learned their lesson:P

Lol. I have a relative that lives in NY that keeps a carton of eggs in the backseat for just that purpose.
But the markers is pretty funny. Did you write anything?

They were all nervous that the person would go crazy, so I wrote "do not block my neighbors driveway as it causes them to borrow mine and leaves me with no place to park". In addition I made all kind of designs^-^

Immediately knew you must be taking about Brooklyn when I saw the thread topic. Really hilarious, can't imagine anywhere else in the world this would happen

How do you do that without destroying your own car as well?

Not sure what heter you had to do that (We pasken אדם עושה דין לעצמו but that only allows you to move the car, not to penalize the owner), you are probably mechuyav to pay whatever it cost to clean and must ask mechila

For those of you that know Lakewood, Satmar is around the corner from my parents house. (the local minyan factory)
People are always blocking our driveway usually partially, so my father started putting stickers on the middle of the windshield so it blocks the view of the driver and usually sliced it into several pieces so it can't be easily removed, and wrote "according to halacha your davining was just pointless as your stealing" or something along those lines and he would put down where it says that.

One time someone totally blocked it as if it didn't even exist, that time I called the police and they ticketed him. (when I called the police I did mention that I am on the local fire dept and he was blocking my car, the cops showed up very quickly)
I only paid 15% by switching to dansdeals

My father would use a bar of soap to write the "do not block" message. non-damaging but annoying to remove...



@Dan, How do the Beachwood folks deal with this? :)
