The woman, who wishes not to be named, said she had already asked politely a number of times in previous notes and had enough when her disabled friend could not visit. However, Ellie Newman, 36, and 39-year-old sister Jordana Timeyin continued to park their vehicles on a street close to where they work in Whitefield, Greater Manchester.
The sisters both drive individual Range Rover Velars in black and white, Manchester Evening News says.
But Ellie returned to her black motor on Thursday to find a note stuck with silicone to the windscreen. It read: “Please stop using this street as a car park.
“Residents are coming home from work/shopping and can not park on their own street!!”
Both Ellie and Jordana believe they are within their rights to park on the street because there are no double yellow lines and they both pay tax.
However, the disgruntled resident wants to see more consideration for people who live on the street in the town just south of Bury.
“My friend wanted to visit, I was making him a dinner as he can barely walk now without a stick and can’t stand up to cook,” she said.
“He couldn’t come as he couldn’t park his car outside my house.
“Without being able to park right outside, he couldn’t walk down the street, so he couldn’t come.”
The woman said some residents have three cars if it is a family where both parents work and their grown up children also drive.
But she says the street, made up of Victorian houses, was not built for cars and there is no possibility of building individual drive ways.
She says the problem is exacerbated by people who don’t live on the street using it as a place to park their vehicles.
She said: “I am not a nasty person and would not do anyone a bad turn.
“But this has been going on for 12 months.
“There is a back to the shops where they work and I am sure they could park there.
“I make no apologies, I have not been rude or malicious.
“It is not criminal damage, the substance I stuck it on with was easy to peel off. It was like a plasticine.
“It was a reasonable request, I was not rude.
“I just explained how things were from a residents view point.
“If you are parking there all day you must know you are causing a problem for somebody.
“I don’t like seeing how we have become a very selfish society.
“I have no time for it.”
