a few days ago someone parked their car across my driveway. between my fence and the road there is about 5 meters of land including a foot path and gutter/runoff ditch. my road extends from my front gate and over a pipe which is meant to preserve the gutter's flow.
this was late at night and the car sat there for well over an hour. luckily they moved on however if they remained there I would have had problems getting out for work as because of how deep this gutter/run off ditch is.
now I know that in Australia if they were on my property I could charge them for trespass but the 5 meters of land outside my front fence, despite the fact I am the one who gets fined if the grass isn't kept short and I have to maintain my driveway, belongs to the local council.
I am wondering, if a car parked itself in a way in which impeded me being able to leave, regardless if they were on my property or council land (ie. parked on the nature strip but blocking my driveway) could I then call the police to impound the car?
