    If someone parked in your driveway and then told you they weren't aware that they weren't allowed to park there, what would you say to them? Suppose they then went on to say that there was no signage saying that they weren't allowed to park there and so were going to anyway? Even with a "no Parking" sign, if you're not a member of the BPA or IAS you cannot enforce it, even if the signs are placed according to the guidelines set out by Popla. Next the owner of the vehicle takes you to court to enforce their right to allow anyone driving their car to park there, hopefully common sense prevails and the judge laughs it out of court but what if there is nothing in law to protect you?

    What exactly is the "other angle" in this? - Its is a specious argument that has been done to death already?

    Thanks for that, I was getting a strong sense of seen it all before, also the "how would you like it if someone parked on your drive" argument does crop up from time to time, and does raise suspicions as to the motives of the person posting it.
