    Apparently not a lot.
    Just heard tail end of a radio phone in.
    In congested areas people have started just leaving thier car on anyones drive. If they block you in you can take action but if not....tough sh*t.
    One guy found a car on his drive.....someone had a skip on THIER drive so parked on HIS drive. He pushed it off his drive and next day...........police came and arrested him.

    My son in law frequently parked on my drive, the bastard.
    I threatened to cut them out of the will, which seemed to sort the issue out satisfactorily.

    If you have a gate you could lock it in. Or is that obstructing the highway?

    Possibly. Someone suggested putting a plank with nails behind it as technically they cannot move your property.

    Yes......apparently you can go that route but the solicitor said "you had better have deep pockets".

    No.....the solicitor on the phone in said "you will need deep pockets" as it is a lengthy process.

    I'd like to think I'd not do something to get myself into trouble, like snipping off all four tyre valves with cable cutters.

    Maybe I'd install a few catclaws in a cement strip across the driveway with a retractable metal cover. Leave cover in place when I'm using the drive, then remove it when I've taken the car out somewhere. There'd be a sign warning against unauthorised use of the driveway.

    Simpler option would be one of those lockable posts in the middle of the drive entrance.
