Areas of Law / Public Law

My daughter lives on a busy road. Her neighbour parks two vans outside his house, which completely obliterate the view of anyone in a car leaving my daughter’s drive. What is the law about vehicles parked in such a dangerous manner?

You can park more or less where you like on public roads as long as you don’t cause an obstruction and you obey any parking restrictions in force. No-one has a legal right to park on a public road however, and the police have the power to enforce the public right to “pass and repass” over every part of it and can prosecute anyone for obstructing the highway. In the interests of good relations your daughter should discuss the problem with her neighbour and ask him to park elsewhere. If this fails she should talk to her community policeman.
