parking quagmire

The neighbors across the street refuse to park in their driveway. Four people live there, each equipped with their own car. And for some reason they would rather park on the street.

Very few houses on our street have driveways and many of these houses have been turned into duplexes, meaning more cars forced to park curbside.

When you have a parking situation like this there is no room for someone who doesn't know how to park. The other day some asshole with a Vespa parked so that only one car could park where three would normally fit, with his scooter!

Then we have the neighbors next door, the ones I am hiding from. They have five vehicles and will call the police if you park in front of their house.

I think I am going to ask the neighbors across the street if I can use their driveway.
