Essential reading for retailers and suppliers in the home improvement market

Homeowners driven crazy protecting parking spaces

Published: 11 September 2007
New research from Halifax Estate Agents reveals just how particular Brits are about their parking space.
Homeowners driven crazy protecting parking spaces
According to results of the survey, more than one in ten people admit to having tried to stop someone from parking outside their property. Preventative tactics include putting up a 'no parking' sign or traffic cones, reporting drivers to the police or local council, and leaving work early to get home before the offending drivers.

However, 79% of participants revealed that they would take a more reasonable approach and opt to talk things over with the perpetrators.

The survey reveals that those living in the North are more protective about their parking space, with one in five having tried to stop someone from parking outside their home, compared to a more relaxed Scotland and Wales where only one in 20 people admitted to a dispute.
