why do so many people bring there work trucks and vans home and take up so much of the residential spaces up pluss the fact it makes it harder for the traffic to move safely around them

Probably because you'll find the majority own that vehicle and have no where else to park and some if company vehicles get paid extra petrol

I see no problem with a work vehicle being parked outside the home the same as you would your own. I think it only should be an issue if running a business from out side, i had this with recovery trucks outside all the time with cars and trucks all over the the place. I hope this is not your issue as it really got me.

Some people bring their work vehicles home because they can be called out on emergencies and have to have them nearby. Some people keep their work vehicles at home because their company is based a long way away but their work is local. Some people bring their work vehicles home because their own vehicle is used by a partner, or because they don't own a vehicle. Some people do it because the company pays for their fuel, but they would have to pay for their own if they used their own car to travel to work. Some people do it beccause they are self employed and don't have business premises.
Is that enough reasons?
A lady down my road has an obsession with vans being parked in the street. I think she thinks it makes it seem like a working class area!
As long as the work vehicle isn't a massive artic, I don't see what the problem is.

I park a Boeing 747 outside my house much to the annoyance of my neighbours, but I am an airline pilot.

What IS annoying are those who own a house with a garage and drive, and then use the garage as a shed. And they have two cars; one goes on the drive, and the other in the road depriving others of a parking space.
Then a tradesman visits them and has to park outside a neighbour's house, who then moans because they have to look out of their window at a van. Seriously!

I've got a garage ! And a van and a car !and I don't park in it! I don't even care what people say! I sometimes park my van up road so it keeps my drive clear and doesn't block my view . It's tax so I can park wherever I like !

We got drive and someone in my road had the cheek to ask me why I parked in the road - err because I pay road tax and can.

Billy you sound fantastic you have a garage and two vehicles; someone's doing alright in this economic climate. Youâ??re clearly a man who appreciates the finer things in life like a beautiful view, good grammar and punctuation. Sod your lucky neighbours Billy you park your transit outside their house so they cant park outside their house because you want that lovely view unobstructed.....what is the view Billy , the off licence? A cat licking its balls? It's tax so I can park wherever I like. It's taxed and you can park it wherever you like you Muppet. Thank god you donâ??t live near me I would slash your tyres dick.
That feels better.

I feel your pain, Sussex Jim. My neighbours have, I think, 5 vehicles now. Only 2 people in the family drive and 3 of the cars never go anywhere. The one in the drive has bindweed growing round the wheels and the one in the garage has never been outside in the 19 years I've lived here.
Amusingly, the man has an obsession with parking near his house. If he can't get the space outside his house or one of the 2 adjacent spaces, he miraculously manages to fit his car in the drive as well as the bindweedy one. He'll never park in his drive if he can park close to his house though.
We also have a lady who doesn't park in her drive because it's too steep, a couple with a trailer in their drive and 2 4x4s in the road, and a couple with 3 vehicles, none of which are in their garage.
Parking in our road is dreadful and you'd never be able to get a fire engine along in an emergency.

Dear me,come on folks, if it's taxed, MOTed and insured, they can park anywhere they like, as long as it's legal. I often have large vans parked outside my house, but I don't spend my day looking out the window at them !! Can we move on to something else pleeeaaaaseeee.

Wow ACT, you really do spend a lot of time looking out of your window to know who drives what and what their parking preferneces are at each of the households down your street. I think you might need a more rewarding hobby - are you lonely?

Not at all lonely, thanks Trevor!
I'm familiar with some of my neighbours' vehicles etc because of the all the time I spend roaming the streets trying to find somewhere to park my car.

In Japan, you cannot buy a car unless you have a parking space at the registered address. But the very nature of the product, to take you to other places where you will need to park it, means that you need communal parking, on or off street!

as long as its not over 3.5 tonne unless its personal non rewarding usage
use you will need an operators licence and the vehicle must be stored there unless it's more the 20 miles away from the depot on company business.
If memory serves me correctly ?
