    Posted: 15 June 2012 at 9:39pm
I park a car in a residential street in Gerrards Cross and then walk to the station. There are no parking restrictions in the road, and the car is not causing an obstruction. Recently a resident has taken to putting notes on my car, and then stickers on the windscreen telling me that there is commuter parking at the station. I know this, but I choose to walk. Has anyone else had a similar experience? Am I wrong to park my car where I choose?   I would be interested to know what the forum thinks.

I think if there's no restrictions and you aren't blocking anyone's access then we all want to save some money and grab free parking.

keep parking there, next one, write on it, get stuffed!
no parking restrictions mean that!
typical GX snobs who think they own the road.
probably the same people who park outside M&S.Confused
i have a good idea where you park, yes, real snobs there, up on themselves.

I do the same. keep doing it.

You are not doing anything wrong. I'm sure you could claim vandalism and harassment, in this day and age.
Is back in the game! :)

Yep, sounds like you have every right to park on that bit of public road.

Gx snob who has nothing better to do. Basically its tough sh*t for them. Public road, no parking restrictions, valid tax disc(i assume!) you can park there as can anyone else.

stand yer ground, if they have an issue, it's something they should take up with the parish or south bucks councils.

Typical.

I remember once escorting a group of schoolkids down a GX road and one of the kids put a sweet wrapper in a skip that was positioned in someones driveway.

Woman opens upstairs window and demands that the wrapper be removed from her skip.    Unbelievable!!

Hi Mikechagas. Of course if there are no parking restrictions and you are parking considerately then you should continue to park there. People can get really ruffled over nothing.

To balance things a bit though I live in CSP on a road where people often park to visit a local business and to walk up to the industrial units to work for the day as there are no parking restrictions. Mostly people park fine however regularly I have people park very close to the edge of my drive which means that I can not see properly to pull off the drive to get onto the road, or they park opposite me which means that again I can have trouble safely leaving the property. I can exit and they aren't doing anything wrong, it's all above board but they just look and see, yes I'm not blocking anything but they are not actually thinking of the mechanics of how someone parked in a property can manouver safely. Sometimes people park so badly that I am essentially nosing out with such a limited view that I feel unsafe. It may be worth just taking a few mins to really look about where you are parking to see if you are causing someone a problem that might not be immediately obvious to you. It's funny how a small thing can blow up as a big thing in someone mind!!! Maybe you could mix it up and park in various spots on the street?

You seem like a thoughtful bloke so I'm not suggesting you are being difficult it's just I know how frustrated I get with the parking on my own street, sometimes irrationally so!!! Like when people park in disabled spaces, mother and baby spaces, oh god thats a whole new rant!!!
