This has happend to me twice.
I’ve parked my car where I’m directed to at a special event, and then later in the day, some lazy idiot blocks me in.
Would it be legal to move a vehicle that has blocked your vehicle in?
The set up – My Wife and I are parked in a field on public property. This is for a triathlon race. There are not any truly designated parking spots, but it’s organized, it’s a grass field with some lime markers for the event, we where directed where to park. The field is used for parking for special events.
About a thousand cars are parked there. Later in the day there are no parking attendants. But a car comes in and blocks us in.
They have prevented us from leaving. It’s obvious that they have done so and did it so they would not have to walk a hundred yards where they could have parked their car and not blocked people.
If I had a friend drag the car out of my way, and did not damage it, would I be liable for anything?
What if I did damage it? They where preventing me from using my property. Preventing me from leaving.
This has also happened to a friend and she called the cops. They said they couldn’t do anything. The cop wouldn’t even give the obstructing car a ticket.
I’m guessing that it would depend on the judge.
