Q: I live in a school zone, directly across from a primary school. It is becoming a problem with people parking in my
Driveway. It’s fine if they are there 3-5 minutes, but I have a consistent woman who parks, leaves her car running and blocks the entire driveway for upwards of 10+ minutes. Even when there are spaces to park away from the driveway and no one is blocking her in; she chooses to block my driveway. Today, she made my handicapped husband late for an appointment because she was parked in front of the right-away. What can I do if anything?
A: Call the police and have them ticket her.

Photograph her car and plate. If she does it again, you have a record. Do that each time and maybe she'll get the message.
You can also put up posts and a chain across the driveway. You just have to remember to take down the chain when you go out! but it sounds like it's only a problem at school time.
I'd also ask the school to notify parents that this is trespassing and they will be ticketed.
