Well the cops don't do anything about it. Double parking is illegal too. Did the perp get a ticket too or were they just whining crying babies? Tattle tales! I don't blame this guy at all. Go down 17th St in Allentown at 5PM sometime. See how many cars are double parked...usually right next to an open spot. Lazy effers!

The article doesn't say anyone was double parked or otherwise illegally parked, so I assume he was just mad that people parked in front of his house as the article states. He does not own the street in front of his house. Sounds like he deserved arrest.

I agree. It never says he double parked and i never thought that when i read the article. And he doesnt own the street, if he want to have a spot to park his car, buy a house with a garage or somewhere where you have a driveway.

I agree with a move for this cowboy but don't agree with how he handled it.

Well in many places you do own the road in front of your house, you just don't have any "right" to it. When I was a kid my parents had the house they owned in south Whitehall surveyed and found the property line went to the double yellow line in the middle of the street. They paid property taxes for like 40 years for public use land. I have never had my property surveyed, I am not sure I want to know how much of the road I pay for with every tax.

As for parking in front of your house, who more deserves to park there? You can have one family on a block parking up the whole street with a fleet of scrap box cars while mother's have to carry small children and groceries for blocks. In many neighborhoods there is a code of honor to not park in front of other people's homes. Do on to others as you would have done to your self. OK the guy was wrong to move the car but the others were wrong to call the police on him. The couple who left the car running with the keys in it were just as wrong as there are laws against that too.

Smart move. This will be an expensive lesson. It won't be cheaper for him because he is not a PR.

Right out of an old Stan Laurel & Oliver Hardy movie. Not nearly as funny as when on screen though.

The article said .... "He sped away about 20 feet". Am I the only one who finds this funny that he "sped" away 20 feet.

So this guy lives out in the townships, where the houses do not share a wall. He lives in relative quiet, and all he asks is that people respect that choice. But people visiting his neighbor can't seem to park in front of his neighbor's house, and leave their motors running, to boot. We are not told whether or not he has taken this up with his neighbor or with any of the people who habitually park in front of his house. Obviously, there is plenty of room for people to pull up to the correct address. He was able to move the car 20 feet without interference..

Deserves and legal are two different things. You may DESERVE the spot, but it is not yours. You do not have a right to the street. You cannot dictate parking arrangements. Buy a home with a garage or rent a townhome with assigned parking.

Besides, I could almost understand his frustration if someone had parked there overnight. These people left the car running while they ran their kid inside. This guy is pathetic. If that had been my car, it would've been worse than the cops. I would've drug him out of my car and beat the crap out of him. Period. He has no business whatsoever touching someone else's property let alone getting into it and driving it.

Despite what you whining people with a false sense of entitlement believe...

YOU DO NOT OWN THE PARKING SPOT ON A PUBLIC STREET!!!!

Don't like it? MOVE!!!

Sounds like this man is a grouchy piece of horses*it. He should be put to sleep like an old dog.

IT IS NOT HIS CAR TO TOUCH OR MESS WITH. PERIOD.

HE DOES NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO DICTATE WHO PARKS WHERE. PERIOD.
