Car was left on the road, turnt off for a period of time, right in front of an empty parking spot too. This caused an entire van to have to reverse through a ā€˜Uā€™ shaped estate lot, another van to have to drive the opposite way to get out of the estate and had there of been a need for any emergency services, they would not have been able to get through. The man did not even signal an apology or thank you when returning after significant time of at least 10 minutes (from when we arrived, it is unknown how long the car was parked there for prior to our arrival) for the inconvenience, illegal actions and time wasted. The car was left a meter before the curve of a turn (where if the person wanted to leave his car unattended he could have done so in this curve/corner of the turn) and it would not have blocked the road or he could have parked into the spot that is directly adjacent to where he left his car.
