A ROW over parking has blown up after an angry driver reportedly left a note on another car.
One person posted about this in a Facebook group which started a debate about the right to park in residential streets in Oadby, Leicester.
Their post in Spotted Oadby said: "Whoever lives on the corner of Pelham Street and Regent Street, if you have parking issues please take it up with the council.
"Do not leave notes on people's cars, especially when they are not blocking entrances.
"At least be man enough to talk to the person face to face instead of hiding behind a note. Cowards."
In response, another person complained that driving in the neighbourhood was becoming dangerous because of the number of parked cars, reports Leicestershire Live.
They added that people who didn't live in the area should pay up the new fee for parking.
They said: "If you have parked right on the corner it's dangerous trying to get out if the road as you can't see down the street till you are well out into the road.

"Maybe you should pay for the parking in the village instead of parking on residential streets.
"Perhaps the sender of the note couldn’t catch you if you’ve been leaving your car there all day. Maybe you park your car on a dangerous corner that could impact both of the streets!"
However, other members argued that what they were doing was perfectly legal because of no parking restrictions in the neighbourhood.
One said: "Residents just think they own the road – and can tell people what to do."
The person who had urged non-residents to park elsewhere shot back: "I’d leave a missile not a note! The cheeky bleeders!
"Never used to be this bad until the car parking charges were applied!
"I’ll happily post a s*** in a Jiffy bag through the windows of the cars of the inconsiderate parkers!
"Not that I left the note! I’d be more of a key scratcher person."
Another person of a similar viewpoint agreed: "My polite notes are written in key, on the side of the car.
"On Spencer Street we get every man and his dog parking."
There have been various developments since Oadby and Wigston Borough Council introduced parking charges for its car parks in both villages.
