Is it illegal to block someone's car from moving?

I am not saying I am doing this or this is being done to me. If this happened to you, what would you do if the person would not move?

  • Call a tow truck! I would also call the police and take photos to make sure I have documentation that they were indeed blocking my car.

  • Sorry, yes I think it is illegal to knowingly block someones car. It is preventing them from using their personal property.

  • here in this state it is illegal... you can have it towed at the owners expense...

  • as far as I know, only if it's in a public area like road side parking on city streets.

  • It probably depends on if it parked on public or private property.

  • I don't think it is illegal,but I live in a pretty liberal state. If it happened to me I would first try to find the owner & ask him to move his car so I could move mine. If I really needed to go & I couldn't find the owner I would probably call the police & let them handle it. The police down here are really good at that!

  • I did this to a guy who I thought was to drunk to drive home, I park right up to his bumper...the next day I went back to my car and he still got away! I talked to him later on and he thought I was the drunk! for parking behind him so close and not getting my car til the next day...we cleared it up and he I think there is an exception to the rule

  • I would check first before having it towed. Depending on the law, you might end up having to pay the tow bill. Unless you don't care who pays for it. If I needed to use my car, I would probably just have it towed a few feet away and pay for the towing. That's just me though....
