    So sick of damn people stealing my apartment spot.

    I'm leaving handwritten signs and I've complained to management. Keeps happening. Now what?

    Apparently it's against the law for tow companies to just come take them away... even if management calls. Sucks.

    Why is it against the law? Also, post a sign and if it's ignored, just let the air out of their tires.

    Edit: Hell, one tire even, so as to not cost them financially, but to inconvenience them.

    I would advocate that you vandalize repeat offenders' cars.

    is it "your" spot by designation of the apartment complex? if so, complain to them non-stop.

    if it's "your" spot because you just always park there... suck it up and park somewhere else.

    Smash wind shield. They can't prove shit! Don't leave finger prints or tools on the scene. And make sure you have alibi that vouch for you not being at the scene of revenge.

    I've done this at our condo. It works very well.

    I parked behind some dingbat in my spot and left it there for three hours. I came back and they were sitting in the car waiting for me. Started to give me shit about parking behind them and I simply smiled and said "don't park in my spot next time".

    But they can exact revenge to whatever car parks there afterwards.

    EDIT: Of course the way around that is to smash a couple other windshields in the parking lot near your parking spot. :laugh:

    I have two words for you: "badgers," and the second word is irrelevant because if badgers don't fix it, nothing will.

    Doesn't that require that he pick up dog shit for the spreading? I don't think this is the optimal solution...

    What's wrong with just taking a dump on their hood?

    I'm interested in the "against the law for tow companies to just come take them away" part... but if that's really the case, then parking behind them really is the way to go. If the tow truck can't tow him, then the tow truck can't to you either, right?

    Throw eggs at their car. Once they bake on in the sun they are damn near impossible to clean off. I hear it can cause paint damage as well...

    We have predatory towing in my townhouse complex. The fuckers are like ninjas... you could park for 2 minutes to run something inside and you come out and your car is gone.

    Collateral damage FTW! Might as well move out after that if the OP doesn't wanna get murdered by his neighbors.

    There was also a thread about a guy who had a boot put on his car when it was parked outside his house, so he used car dollies to roll the car into his garage and called the boot company to let them know they could come and take their boot back if they wanted it.

    $130 for 4 car dollies

    Use these to move the car yourself. Roll it sideways into a spot where the guy can't drive the car out. Sell him the car dollies for $300. :D
