    Just been out to cut the grass and wish I hadn't. Woman passing in a car started shouting out her window about "your truck", a motorhome to you and me, blocking her view as she nearly hit a car passing two parked cars in the road (belonging to next doors, nothing to do with me but usually they have one parked in front of my house as they have about 4 or 5 cars). I can't see how my motorhome, in my driveway could possibly obstruct her view, she's driving on the left and my house and motorhome are on the right hand side, as are the neighbour's parked cars. Anyhow she starts ranting that a kids going to get killed and it will all be my fault and how your not allowed to park caravans (from truck to caravan now) in the driveway's. I've been on the council web site and couldn't find anything about caravans or motorhomes in private driveways then checked my house deeds which says no caravans, boats, trailers or commercial vans can be parked on the roadway. I think this must mean the driveways ok unless roadway is legal speak for driveways as well? Wish I'd let the grass grow now, feeling :Sad:

    If she couldn't see she shouldn't have been overtaking.

    If a motorhome blocked her view then a 4x4 would have done the same.

    Maybe she needs new eyewear?

    Although I agree with the other posters about her driving ability,I've never heard of a developer being able to put a covenant on an public highway!
    If it's a private road and you and your neighbours maintain the road( which doesn't seem right if she's using it ) then it could be that,as is more and more the norm,your developer has basically banned you and your neighbours from having caravans and Mh's,vans etc on your drive!By way of a covenant !
    Believe it or not as estates get built tighter together a high sided vehicle can
    Create a blind spot.
    Best say nothing,because I've known people fall fowl of such legislation,and if such a covenant exists you'll only loose out by paying storage fees!
    I think your deeds only cover your property not the highway look again!

    Do you know her??? Is she maybe a member of the local Kirk?? If so, proceed at once to your local chip oyl, and purchase a battered Mars bar. This should be inserted into the ladies rectum after she answers your knock on her door, with the words "Chew on that, bi**h". :thumb::thumb:::bigsmile:

    l agree about letting sleeping dogs lie but it doesnt say motorcaravans and it doesnt fit the restricted terms

    Have a read of this...then print it off and insert it up the womans rectum.

    If your house deeds do not have a covenant specifically preventing you from keeping your motorhome (aka as a 'caravan' for this purpose) on your drive, then there is nothing anyone can do to stop you doing so. As for the restriction on the road, this is something that councils use to stop anything other than cars being parked on them to preserve the amenity for all, especially if there properties were built with their own drives to be used and/or if the roadway isn't that big, or there are a lot of properties in one area etc.

    off on a slight tangent i know but we have had a similar issue. we are getting the house remodelled a bit at a time. when the builders need space on the drive, i park the motorhome on my daughters driveway. problems started when a neighbour complained to her landlord, a local housing association.
    the ha consulted their rules and the deeds and threatened my daughter with eviction if it wasnt removed same day. my daughter is like me, and wont be bullied so we bit back.
    a motorhome is not a caravan and is a road legal vehicle, you are allowed to park those on the drive. we wrote to the ha asking them to confirm that they would be legally liable if the vehicle was damaged if parked on the road outside the property or caused an obstruction. needless to say the ha backed straight down as they were put into an awkward legal position

    the van now spends the occasional week on daughters drive without any complaints

    back to the op....ignore the rantings of a bad driver trying to blame anyone else for their own incompetence

    Forget the motorhome salute for one moment. What you need to learn in cases like this is the Essex Salute

    Thanks folks for all the replies. Feeling much better about it now, think she was really looking for someone to blame cause she nearly caused an accident and I just happened to be in the garden. My motorhome is often in storage but here for the moment as we were away in it last weekend and as I have no other driver it's a pain to get back from the storage unit. She must live round here as it's a dead end but with lots of offshoots ie about 50 houses past mine so I feel at a disadvantage not knowing exactly where she stays, wish I'd noted the reg. no. ::bigsmile:

    Unfortunately, her behaviour is all too often encountered if you ride a push bike in this country. It's the "I have a right to drive my car on the road and let no one get in my way ".

    I spent two weeks cycling in Spain recently and felt more threatened in the 45 minute cycle from Plymouth ferry terminal back to my house than in the entire time I was away.
