A SNAKRY note has been left of a parked car, sparking a row in a North Wales seaside town.
The note, seemingly written by an angry resident of Colwyn Bay, informed the driver that the street on which they had parked is a “residential road and not a car park.”
It went on to ask that they park elsewhere in future.
The motorist’s mother, who described herself as “highly disappointed” by the incident.
The furious mum took to Facebook to vent her frustration.
She said her son had been parking in the town to work twice a week for over four months without complaint.
He had apparently parked outside the town centre on Hillside Road, which has no parking restrictions apart from some disabled parking spaces allocated to certain houses.
In her post she said: “I would suggest that the person who wrote this note contacts the local council if they have a problem with the parking outside the property – instead of taking their frustration out on a young lad who just wants to work for a living and not cause mischief around the town like others his age.”
She added that her son only parks in spaces that do not block driveways and fretted: “It is disturbing that whoever has put this note on his car is watching him and his whereabouts.”
This caused a stir online, with commenters split in their reaction.
Supporters of the unhappy mum called the note “childish”, con uno diciendo: “No one has a right to tell anyone where they can and cannot park, as long as the car is insured taxed and has an MOT.
“If he’s not actually blocking the driveway then what’s the problem?”
Another piled in, saying that they have “had more letters than parking tickets in the Bay, it’s funny.”
sin embargo, some defended the residents and urged drivers to be more “considerate” in where they park.
One former resident of Hillside Road said that she moved away from the street because she couldn’t park outside her home.
At that time I had three sons living with me and carrying in shopping from some distance away was tedious,
She believes that locals should apply for a residents only parking order.
A current resident said: “I’m not a note writer but I know how extremely annoying it is to get home with kids shopping etc and have to park miles from your own home due to other people parking.”
“99% of you would be p****d at someone parking outside your house all the time,” added another local.

According to the RAC “Where no parking controls exist, drivers do not have an “automatic spot” for parking outside their homes.”
The website adds that it is “perfectly legal” to park on uncontrolled streets as long as your vehicle does not block a driveway or a dropped curb.
