Mercedes driver explains why he parked across womans driveway for two hours – Liverpool Echo

A woman almost didn’t get her weekly shop after a Mercedes owner parked his car across her driveway.

The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, says the car blocked her drive for more than two hours on Wednesday night.

She says she’s never experienced this in more than forty years of living on Forest Road in Southport.

She told the ECHO : “The driver abandoned their car across my driveway.

“I checked my Ring camera and saw it was left at 6.52pm and it was gone 8pm when they returned.

“I wasn’t happy and the Morrisons delivery driver, who wasn’t able to park near my house, wasn’t impressed either.

“Then the men returned, the driver didn’t seem to understand my problem, he just said they had ‘been at the footie’ as though he expected me to say ‘oh, that’s alright then!’

“More than 40 years we have lived here and this has never happened before.”

The ECHO understands a football match took place at nearby Southport Football Club, on Haig Avenue.

A tweet says a match between AFC Liverpool and City of Liverpool Under 18s had a venue change due to failing floodlights.

Thankfully, the woman’s delivery driver was able to get her shopping to her, but she is still confused as to why the driver chose this particular parking spot.

She continued: “If they’d asked me if it was okay, I’d have probably let them, or at least pointed out that there were no restrictions on the other side of the road [where there is a single yellow line] on a Wednesday evening.”
