Even in the idyllic countryside hereabouts, there lurks a neighbour who is on a mission. In a nearby side-road, parking can be a problem for those with no drive or garage. So, the owners park in a responsible way (not blocking access and facing with the flow of the traffic) on the road itself.
Our aforementioned neighbour has taken exception to this practice, even though he has a garage and parking spaces for two cars on his own property. To thwart the efforts of those desperate for a parking space on the road outside his house, he leaves his driveway empty and parks his two cars on the road.
I suppose there must be a name for the logical process that seeks to stop cars from parking in front of one's house, by parking cars in front of one's house?
