A bit of a neighbour dispute is brewing in a quiet residential road where an elderly couple are being intimidated by a resident on the opposite side who is complaining about them parking on the road at a point opposite his new driveway. There is enough road width for the guy to manouevre without NEEDING to move the car on the opposite side of the road, PROVIDED THAT he reversed into his driveway on every occasion. Driving out rather than reversing out would then be easier as well.
Reg 106 of the construction & Use Regs 1986 state "No person shall drive, or cause ..(etc), a motor vehicle backwards on a road further than may be requisite for the safety or reasonable convenience of the occupants or other traffic....."
OR is the vehicle parking opposite the driveway guilty of unnecessary obstruction?
It's one I'll be passing to the Neighbourhood Specialist Officer for him act as referee, but would appreciate some advice for him to consider before he gets directly involved...
