My neighbor continues to harrass. What should I do?

Shelby, MS |

I live across the street from my neighbor. We both have private driveways across from each other. My neighbor harrasses me everytime someone parks their vehicle on the side of the road in front of my house. She claims that the vehicles block her driveway. Let me remind you that the vehicles are never directly in the road, because we don't want to block traffic. They always parked on the opposite sides of my driveway or across my driveway.

This neighbor acts as though the vehicles are being parked on her side of the road in front of her house. I am tired of this.

What should I do about this neighbor?

Some people are just a pain. But if all she is doing is yelling that is not enough to get an injuction.
If she hurts you in some way, or attacks someone's car then you could file a police complaint. You can do so for the verbal harassment but I believe all she will get is a warning from the judge.

I agree with Mr. Sarno. Some people are just difficult people. Unfortunately, I do not believe that your summary rises to the level of harassment that will support a restraining order. To be certain of that, you should consult with a Mississippi lawyer.
