Abandoned

For more than twenty-four hours,
unknown car parked on the grass
outside our house;
abandoned?

    Is this a little bit creepy?

      The police were informed. They tell us that is a local vehicle and not reported stolen or involved in any crime and as it is not causing an obstruction they will take no action. My son said it was there when he came in on Monday night, it is now three days later and it is still there. The police said we could put a note on it for the owner, suggesting they move it, but no-one has been back to it at all! A real mystery!

    It is odd that the police will do nothing to have it moved.
    If it is a neighbor why can’t they put the vehicle nearer to their own place?
    Not causing an obstruction…it’s ruining your grass unless that grass is a public easement. Do they have a visitor and have given up their own driveway for the visitor?
    I suppose if it isn’t illegally parked there isn’t much to do except make a bigger note? Like: Please Move Your Car. You can get special car soap or paint that won’t damage the window and just write on the windows? Maybe that will get their attention?

      Hubby put a note in the window saying “Help, please take me home, I’m fed up with everyone talking about me!”. This morning there was a reply: a sad face and the message “broken clutch being mended at the weekend!” So at least we now know it has broken down.

    I believe if the car is parked on your property you can put a note on it that if it is not removed within 24 hours you are going to have it towed at the owners expense. Give the name of the towing company and they will have to pay for the tow in order to get their car back.

      It wasn’t actually on our property, just outside our house on the verge. Anyway it has gone now. We eventually found out (via correspondence with the owner through notes on the windscreen!) it had a broken clutch, but why it took so long to remove it I don’t know.
