Why People Like To Park Their Car in-front of Other People's House?
I stay in USJ 11 since 2 years ago.
Recently, there is a family move in to the house opposite to mine. This family always like to park their cars in front of my house. I have to "honk" like hell then they will only remove it.
I just do not understand - why got such people in this world !
Oh God .... Please help me

why don't you park in front of their house...maybe like this, they will get the message.
There are people who are like that. Somemore they tell you that is to prevent your children from running into the road. I swear that was what my neighbour told me!
Nowadays, some ppl got too many cars but they can't afford a house with more parking space.
You have a very interesting neighbour

Err buddies...never mind lah...for as long as the cars are not blocking access into your own house...or they are not causing too much obstructions to the other road uses...never mind lah.
Ahem...outside of the perimeter of your house...it's council land...NOT yours to begin with.
The problem is with the housing developers...they wanna squeeze as many houses for sale to earn as bigger bucks as possible into their plot of development land...
So the roads n roadside compounds ended up narrower...
Ahem...next time the house buyers should be smarter to choose to buy their houses which have wider roads n roadsides in between each rows of houses.
NOT necessarily they ended up paying more to begin with...n the routine accessing of vehicles in n out of their house...would be a lot easier as well...
So...never mind lah...
OP .. u must be one of those who stays in a bungalow or condo, so u don't and won't face this problem huh?

Then when visitors come to visit them and they find that there's no parking space because of their own selfishness, they will park at neighbour's front house. I usually put a warning in paper first on their windscreen "don't park here, you don't pay parking fees'".

the problem is our strecth has a very high car density. imagine that the cars are parked until only 1 lane is available for traffic to pass through. usually the cars parked outside do not block access but they make it more difficult for me to reverse out or enter the house.
Hmmm.......the last time I beh ta han ppl parking infront of my gate, I mix filthy water with sand and pour the mixture all over his car. Did it one time and that fellow never park again. Not a very good thing to do but if you encounter such problem over and over again you will tend to loose anger.
Some ppl are just not civic minded.
All these problems are caused by poor and outdated building and drainage planning. We are still using pre-WW2 designs. Unlike Singapore and other countries which upgrade their knowledge and competency, our councillors use their official trips for shopping and personal businesses. No one is bothered to take a look at the by-laws governing our housing industry. No one cares.
In many countries, there are strict laws regarding the buffer zones between houses and the public roads. Many have pedestrian walks in the buffer zones.
Look at the apartment blocks. Many apartment blocks are built right to the edge of the road except for a small drain. There is no buffer zone at all for the grass or to walk. The quality of life in Malaysia is miserably low.
Anyhow, I do not like to buy houses facing one another. I always try to buy one facing the field or the side of a corner lot.
