Go and buy some brake fluid and wash his car with it.

You can ring the police on their non-emergency / local police station number and they should be able to give you some advice.

I wish I could do that - but I cant use my car to get out to get some

set fire to it, then the firebrigade will come out and move it

I would never condone criminal damage but that's sooooo annoying........

Ask a Policeman

They can and do tow cars that block you in (but not the other way round)

sit in your car and keep your hand on the horn? moan about it on hot uk deals? start at the bottom and knock on all the doors and ask them?

ram it oO

if it looks like it is alarmed bounce on the bonnet a bit they will soon come out!
i do this to people that park in disabled spaces then watched them appear shame faced to turn it off - keeps me amused anyway

OP you must be able to get the owners attention if you beep the horn & flash your lights on his car continuously & I bet the driver is waiting for you to do that & will be out in seconds to move his/hers car.

Ring 'em back and tell them someone is loitering near a car (and give reg) looking like they are going to vandalise it.

When they arrive, thank them for attending and instruct them to move it. When they ask about the vandal, just say you are looking at him, but you now wont be doing anything to the car blocking your drive on account of the fact the Police have arrived and will move it for you so wont be thinking about damaging it now.

wait till there coming out sitting in the car,beeping the horn,take note of reg number and tell them if u see them again parked there,you will get it towed away

Ring them back and explain as you pay their wages (that always goes down well) you would like them to come out and do what they are paid to do, ie enforce the law

Cause unnecessary obstruction by motor vehicle - Contrary to regulation … Cause unnecessary obstruction by motor vehicle - Contrary to regulation 103 of the Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986, section 42 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 and Schedule 2 to the Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988Regulation 103 of the Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986 creates the offence of unnecessary obstruction.103. No person in charge of a motor vehicle or trailer shall cause or permit the vehicle to stand on a road so as to cause any unnecessary obstruction.The penatly is a fixed penalty fine.....althought the Removal and Disposal of Vehicles Regulations 1986 provide for the removal and disposal of broken down, illegally parked or abandoned vehicles police officers powers to get your vehicle towed away in some cases which means the owner will have to pay the recovery costs to get the car back.

Not usually wise to go making threats to someone who probably knows you were to weak to do something in the first place and he knows where you live and probably the type of thoughtless individual who will come and give his car a brake fluid car wash in the night!
