Did you know that by doing that you could be charged with harassment?

Done that with permament marker (which washes off with alcohol, and you can see through).

And I've done it with lipstick when some plonker parked so close to me that I could not open my door.

Actually, you are not allowed to hinder/block anybody, even if they are in your spot as you would then be committing an offence.

Best is to look up the plates online and then contact the owner.

Re: Unknown car parked in our drive

Remove valve cores from tires, releasing all air quickly. Replace valve cores.
No damage, just thought you'd help the poor sod 'freshen his tires'. Go shopping (plausible deniability).

Set fire to it?

Key the paintwork?

Sell it?

Leave a note under the windscreen wiper?
OK, 1, 2 or 3 fair enough. But do you have to go Swiss nuclear with option 4?

Block it in, make a cup of tea, sit down and enjoy the show.
Had a neighbor who was doing that all the time: too lazy to park in the proper space, he was always leaving the car in the middle, blocking the passage for everyone else, despite being told countless times.

Then I started blocking him in with mine, with increasing reaction times: he learned quickly not to do it anymore.

Make sure that the driver is aware that he's got flat tyres. Make sure that you've let all the air out. Driving on under-inflated tyres reduces grip on the road and can lead to loss of control and life.

Also, it doesn't solve the problem of the car being in the wrong place.

rubbish! I once parked on private property and got the car towed into the bloody mountains. That was a bit of a hindrance.
