Tandem Parking laws - any experience?

2 Replies

Is anyone familiar with any laws/cases involving tandem parking? I did a search online and could not find much. I will define it as a parking space in front of a parking space. Both belonging to different owners. In other words, the car in the back space would have to be moved for the front car to exit, and if a car were parked in the back space and the front space was vacant, it would not be accessible unless the back car was moved. 

Could the person with the back space legally refuse to move their car? 

By battery is dead ,  Sorry , I am out of town right now .  Are just 2  easy excuses someone could use .  Now if the blocked in car were a 4x4 truck , it isnt a problem .

So it wouldn't be recommended to have the anterior space basically. If I had the posterior space, I would not want to deal with the hassle of having to move (or having a tenant move) a vehicle at random times, and I'm guessing that there is no law that would compel the tenant to move a vehicle. Whoever purchases an anterior space would do so with the knowledge that it might be unusable.
