I live next to a neighbour from hell – they keep parking on my drive… but I got my own back

A DRIVER whose neighbour from hell kept parking on his drive has revealed how he got his own back.

The anonymous motorist took to Reddit to share the story of his ingenious revenge.

He explained: “My elderly mother moved to a condo where most unit owners had indoor garages under their units, except my mum’s, who had two outdoor stalls. 

“Knowing my mum didn’t have any cars, [the neighbour] always parked there and used the other stall as his personal visitor parking.”

This allegedly blocked his mother’s many relatives, including her 12 siblings, from parking when they came to visit.

When the family confronted him, the Reddit user claimed that he refused to stop using the driveway, even when they put up a no parking sign.

However, he would not give up and devised a cunning plan to catch the annoying neighbour out.

That week, he sent a letter saying any unauthorised vehicle in the space would be towed and set up a motion-activated webcam directed at the bay.

When the camera alerted him to a pair of cars being parked on the driveway, he got straight on the phone to the police and arranged to have it towed.

The victorious family man recalled: “When I got there 20 minutes later a tow truck had already picked the truck up and was leaving.

“He said the second tow truck was 15 minutes away.”

To inflict even more revenge, as he waited for the second tow truck, he used a heavy duty chain and padlock to secure the neighbour’s car to a lampost.

When the furious car owner demanded his car was released, he charged him £100 for the privilege.

The Redditor chuckled: “The man throws a wobbler, screaming at me that he is going to sue me and evict my mum.

“He finally paid the tow op and his car was released but I refused to unchain his car. He threatened to call the cops.

“I, admittedly was probably in the wrong, but I called his bluff and said go ahead.

“He screamed and yelled and threatened me for a good 15 minutes until he was finally all ranted out.”

Once he calmed down, the neighbour apparently learnt his lesson and agreed not to park on the driveway again.

It comes after another homeowner was left furious as “shameless” parents park inches from their door on the school run.

Meanwhile, a parking warden revealed the exact time you won’t get a fine even if you break the rules.
