An electric vehicle driver is furious after an angry notice was taped to his windshield for being parked in an alleyway.
The perceptive motorist was outraged after a nosy neighbor told her she couldn’t park behind her own house – but who’s right?
Amy Baldwin posted the angry handwritten message on social media, but her response divided opinion.
It said, “This is not a car park, please DO NOT park here.”
“Or it will be towed away,” emphasized the annoyed resident.
Stunned by the rude letter, Amy wrote, “I had this on my windshield.”
“Looks like I can’t charge in the alleyway right behind my house.
“Even if the neighbors at the end of the alley block this access around the clock and I am about halfway down the alley.
“Public fees are there for me for the next five years.”
Amy insisted she was right and hadn’t parked illegally or blocked other residents.
“Neighbors definitely have space to access their backyards but not for other cars, but I never see other cars using that lane as it’s very narrow,” she continued.
“In the end there are only other neighbors who, like me, use the opposite entrance.”
But the shocked EV owner didn’t get the reaction she expected.
One user commented: “Probably not popular opinion, but if it’s not your country and you don’t have permission then you’re causing an obstruction whether you think it’s important or not.”
Another dubious person wrote, “It could be preventing an emergency vehicle, such as a fire engine, from reaching the back of the houses as an obstruction.”
“With a handwritten note like this, all I can see is an angry neighbor. I’m not advocating upsetting the neighbors now, but seriously. Are you blocking anyone’s access?” asked a third.
But others agreed that the “grumpy” neighbor should step down.
“I think as long as you don’t go to the bathroom, park it there late at night, charge it overnight and switch it around first thing, you’ll be fine,” one commented.
“Try to find the note and have a conversation with him, he might be receptive,” they added.
Another unimpressed user wrote: “Why? Ignore the note. There is no legal force behind it.”
“Middle finger,” teased someone else.
This is happening because steaming letters are hanging on windshields across the country.
