    Very true the other problem is heavy on the juice, so displaying them needs a low loader......... to take from A-B etc, although I doubt you will get any problems from the neighbours and the big bonus is when someone parks in the front of your drive* or nicks your parking place its not a problem getting out or getting your place back......

    *Had a problem for many years with teachers from my old school parking in front of my double gates, the house itself was an old coach house which I made the front the back and the back the front so it looked like no one lived three........but in 2 ft letters there was a notice "No Parking 24 Hr access required" on the gates obvious the teachers who taught in the school opposite were illiterate which I did bring this point across to the headmistress, as even the kids could read the writing, after many times of not having any exit or access I give up on any warning and just rang the police and explained the situation although they even stopped coming round and rang straight through to the local breakdown garage around the corner, all cars were removed by force put on the breakdown wagon and empounded........... the look on the owners faces was worth its wait in gold when looking for there cars...... although nothing a Chieftain or similar could of solved in seconds........... and I think the grin factor of driving over there cars would of been very comforting.......

    The expression, 'Don't get even, get ahead', pretty much covers that.

    Letting the tyres down is also a cure because there's absolutely sod-all they can do about it, even if they see you doing it. There could be a case of 'theft' - of the air in the tyres but since you haven't 'dishonestly appropriated' it, it's doomed to failure.......... What really pees house holders off is the actual wording, that of obstructing the free passage of the highway and not obstructing the free passage to your driveway.
