Having the van in that spot blocks our view for on coming traffic when we are backing out our car from the garage. One day a few months ago, Justin saw a neighborhood drunk did a numero uno in the space between the van and our fence, yuck! There's always a ton of trash on the outside of the fence and I usually have no problem picking them up. But you couldn't pay me to get in between the fence and the van to clean up the trash, because I am afraid of what I might find there.
Anyhoo, I called the city's abandoned vehicle hotline couple of weeks ago. Last week, the guy moved his van to the other side of the road, I was ecstatic, thought that maybe he got a warning from the city to move his van. Justin and I joked about how we should plant a tree in his "parking" spot to keep him away for good. But our excitement was short lived. He moved the van back to the same spot two days later. I had a chance to talk to him when he moved the van back last week, but I chickened out and I have regretted since. So now I am wondering if I should leave a note or call the city again. Or, just go over and knock on his door to talk to him in person.
