I had a problem at one time with people parking across my driveway and
blocking the front of my business. My cop friend told me it would be a
crime for me to damage the vehicles in any way including flattening the
tires. I told him I would think of something and I did. I started
covering their tags with duct tape and I imagine quite a few wound up
face down on the pavement with cops pointing guns at them. I told my cop
friend what I had done and after laughing himself silly, told me
that a traffic ticket for an obscured tag was quite expensive. So
whenever anyone pulled up to my place and asked if it was OK to park
there I said it would cost them a minimum of $300.00. :-)
Ah, you are one of those guys...
I have a few ways of fixing people like you once and for
all that cost a couple of thousand a pop...
So rather than deal with the issue legally, by complaining
to the proper government agency and petitioning for
"NO PARKING ANYTIME" signs being posted in front
of your driveway, you tamper with someone else's vehicle
which is contrary to the advice your wise cop friend gave
You wouldn't like my kind of medicine... Because what
goes around comes around... :-O
We used to live in an apartment building with limited parking space.
But we were near an area with big athletic events. And people would
discover our spaces instead of paying to park.
One of the occupants had reminders that would go in an envelope,
along with a couple of their tire valve cores.
Didn't take them long to learn to go elsewhere.
We lived across the street from a NYC college. On weekends and late
night we could park anywhere we wanted, but during school hours it was
packed for blocks around.
We had to get special permission, after many meetings with our local
police department, to block our own driveways during school hours. The
agreement was that if we put a sign on our dash with our address, they
wouldn't ticket us. If we forgot, we were free game.
On the rare occasions when a student would try to fool the police with
a sign, we just called it in and waited for the cops to tell them it
wasn't our car.
No, that's actual damage/vandalism, the tape peals off with no damage.
I do have some crack and peal paper(the type used for stick on labels)
that I once used to print my own bumper stickers with nasty, offensive
things on them. I would paste them on a vehicle blocking two parking
spaces or the vehicle of someone who knowingly cut me off in traffic.
People will often cut you off by accident but the extension of the
middle finger or the mouthing of foul language can indicate that it was
no accident. I would follow them if I had time and see where they parked
then install one of my rude bumper stickers on their vehicle. "Kiss My
Ass COP!", "Nuke The Nxxxxrs", anything that would attract unwanted
attention to the unpleasant person. With the advent of scads of
surveillance cameras, it's much more risky than it once was. My modus
operandi has always been to cause no damage or not to harm anyone. Of
course if someone else wants to kick the offender's ass, it's OK with
Once in Las Vegas, I was gassing up my car. A guy pulled in with two or
three vehicles on one of those ramp trucks that is either a reposessor or a
transport. His boom box was booming, and booming racist angry filthy spew.
He got out, and started to go in, leaving the boom box running. He took a
few steps, and turned back and reached through the window and turned it off.
"Thank you," I said. He turned back and turned on the boom box again, gave
me a dirty look, and headed inside. I was putting on the gas cap, having
filled up. I was done.
He was on the outside of the island with several cars including mine
blocking his view. I emptied a rather large can of pepper spray into his
opened vehicle window and left. He had California plates, so imagine he
either was delayed getting back to Cal, or drove with the windows open.
We used to have that problem when our city's Fourth of July
celebration took place at the lake across the street from us. People
intent on having their picnic and watching the fireworks show would
park anywhere, including in our driveways, even when we homeowners
were ordering them to GTFO. We'd just phone a towing service. Towing
companies never pass up an opportunity to make their hefty profits.
And it's fun watching mom and dad's reaction when, hours later, they
and their whiny kids suddenly realize their car is GONE. Serves 'em right!
An old towel applied to the windshield with some water, or over the door
seams, and allowed to sit works well, too. Or just a squirt of water into
the keyholes ....................... SuperGlue works good for that, too,
but that's a bit of overkill. That's usually reserved for the unfaithful,
or those who visit them. Better if the car is unlocked, and you can get to
the ignition ................
I never actually did this, but just heard about it from a friend who heard
it from his cousin's hairdresser's gardener.
Then there's the cop car being chained to the fire hydrant in "American
