An angry resident who stuck a piece of paper with a silicone-like substance on a car window to prevent two sisters from parking on her street has defended her actions.
The woman who wants to remain anonymous told the Manchester Evening News she had politely asked the Range Rover Velar driver several times in earlier notes.
But it was the last straw when she claimed that her disabled friend could not visit her home.
Ellie Newman, 36, and sister Jordana Timeyin, 39, park their vehicles on a street near where they work in Whitefield Greater Manchester.
The sisters both drive Range Rover Velars – one in black and the other in white.
But the siblings, both of whom work at the Bridgewater Acceptances credit agency, say they left notes on their windshields on several occasions, including sticking them to the glass with glue.
On Thursday, Ellie claimed she found a piece of silicone stuck to the windshield of her black Range Rover after finishing work.
The note in black felt-tip pen read: “Please stop using this street as a parking lot.
“Residents come home from work / shopping and cannot park on their own street !!”
Ellie said she and sister Jordana had the right to park there as they both pay taxes.
But the angry local resident said she wanted more consideration for the people who live on the streets.
She said: “My friend wanted to visit him, I made him dinner because he can hardly walk without a stick and cannot get up to cook.”
“But he couldn’t come because he couldn’t park his car in front of my house.
“Without being able to park right in front of the door, he couldn’t go down the street, so he couldn’t come.”
The woman said some residents have three cars if it is a family where both parents work and their adult children also drive.
But she says the street, which is made up of Victorian houses, is not built for cars and there is no way to build individual driveways.
She says the problem is exacerbated by the fact that people who do not live on the street use it to park their vehicles.
She said, “I’m not a bad person and I wouldn’t harm anyone.
“But it has been going on for 12 months.
“There’s a back to the stores they work in and I’m sure they could park there.
“I’m not apologizing, I wasn’t rude or vicious.”
Ellie reported the incident online to the Greater Manchester Police Department.
The resident said, “There is no property damage, the substance I used to stick it was easy to peel off. It was like a plasticine.
“It was a reasonable request, I wasn’t rude.
“I was just explaining how things were from a resident’s point of view.
“If you park there all day, you have to know that you are causing someone a problem.
“I don’t like to see how we have become a very selfish society.
“I have no time for that.”
