Maybe if you stopped clipping curbs like that your suspension wouldn’t need so much work on it.

If that was my grass, or not my grass but outside my house, I wouldn’t care one bit. Life’s far too short.Posted 2 years agotrail_ratMember
So her only gripe is you driving over some public land ?
Could be worse. Could be one of them **** that parks half on the pavement.
Bit like those folk that come on here moaning about folk driving on *not* their grass infront of their house and want to stick rocks out on the council’s land an all that.
She needs to get back in her box not her land to be reseeding even if you are being a bit naughty by driving over it it’s none of her business if it’s not her land.Posted 2 years ago
In years to come, historians would pinpoint this thread as the moment when the great STW Civil War started. Little did the forum denizens know, but soon they would be fighting tooth and nail for either the ProBiddies or ProOP.
Thousands of lives would be lost…..and the grass would run red with blood…..as well as still be a bit rutted.Posted 2 years agoglasgowdanMember
I’m sure I posted a big reply but it’s not gone through.
Basically, everyone has assumed the OP isn’t telling the truth.
How about reviewing your comments and replying on the assumption he IS telling it as it is. That the neighbour is quite simply hateful, the van is simply too long to avoid the grass, can’t turn left out of the drive as it’s even tighter etc.Posted 2 years agoAmbroseSubscriber
If you/ me/ OP/ anyone kept cycling over the grass and it ended up in a state…? I suspect few of us would be that concerned.
However, my view on this specific situation is that the vehicle is not really suited for the driveway if it is not able to be driven into and out of the drive without inconveniencing others.Posted 2 years ago
Another visit to the forum finds me now being unable to drive a van correctly. Ive only been driving 30 years. As for the stalker checking MOT stats how sad. Do you know when I bought the vehicle? Why didn’t you post that the Only MOT it’s had since I owned it it sailed through with no advisories.Posted 2 years ago
The road to the left of my drive is significantly narrower than the right of my drive as the road opens out onto a turning circle sort of area.
All those that can get a 6.5m van turned in a 5m space without alcohol come and try it with your own van..do you drive big throbbing shiny red cars by any chance?
If I was to park on the left of my drive and pull out and turn the rear overhang of the van will scrape the post.CougarSubscriber
Wonder how many of you chaps have driven large vans?
I’ve driven many, I used to work for a coachworks company to earn a few bob when I was a student. Used to pick up cab & chassis and deliver fully built flatbeds. Biggest I’ve driven was right on the limit of a 7.5T licence. I was 20. Also drove a big works van in a later job.
Do any of you people live where parking is at a premium?
Its a bit of grass FFS, who cares?
The OP’s neighbour, try to keep up. (-:Posted 2 years agotjagainMember
This thread keeps on giving. Intially it was mainly in the OPs favour then shifted to be against him.
to those of you who thinks its OK at what point does damaging public property become OK? If driving over a grassy verge is OK what about knocking over roadsigns that are in your way? How about bollards – inconvenient things they are and get in the way and stop you parking where you want.
Public statues? there are some in Edinburgh blocking spaces that could be used for car parking
At what point does it become wrong to damage public proerty so you canpark?
to the OP – I do sympathise with your wish to keep your tools safe but you need to find another way of doing this so you can avoid doing this damage.Posted 2 years agokelvinSubscriber
Not enough sympathy for the old dear here it seems.Posted 2 years ago
Back in her day, everyone wanted the front of their property to look nice, it reflected on them personally.
If she wants to keep up standards, and her neighbour doesn’t care or understand, it must be frustrating for her.
