A man from Scotland was left stunned after he was told that he has no right to park on his own street.
The Scottish driver, who parked his car a couple of feet away from his house, was handed out an angry note by a neighbor who told him that he had no right to park where he was.
The driver, who is from Scotland, said that he parked his car around 6 houses down from where he lives but in doing such a thing, he managed to make one of his neighbors really angry.
The angry neighbor then accused him of abandoning his car and causing an obstruction.
The neighbor left a letter, where he demanded the man to move his car and even included a date by which they wanted it to be gone.
The note that was left said:
This vehicle has been abandoned in a through road. The vehicle is causing an obstruction and is parked on one or more of the following inconsiderate or illegal ways – on a pavement, too close to a junction or too close to a driveway – and has been photographed as evidence. The residents of [the street] have a right to ease of access and egress to their own driveways. If you do not live at this part of [the street] you have absolutely no right to leave your vehicle parked here. Kindly remove your vehicle by close of play on January 4, 2022. Or its presence shall be reported to the relevant authorities and its uplift and impounding requested.
The note also noted that the driver should not be bringing back the vehicle to the area.
The driver, who did not want to be named, shared the entire incident on Facebook, where it went viral.
In the post, the driver said:
Vehicle police strike again. Parked about six houses down from my own for one night because I couldn’t get parked outside my own house. Some people need to get out more.
The thing is, the Scottish driver did not really do anything wrong, legally, we’re saying.
According to the Citizens Advice Scotland, there are no laws in the c country when it comes to parking your vehicle outside someone else’s house.
However, there are some rules when the place has a designated parking space.
During an interview with DailyStarUK, a spokesperson for Citizens Advice Scotland (CAS) said:
You don’t have an automatic right to park directly outside your home or to prevent others from doing so, unless parking in a street is prohibited, or a space is reserved by the local authority for a particular resident. For example, a blue badge holder may have a designated parking space.
