Car (grey Ford Territory) illegally parked across driveway this morning 8.12am on 26th Feb 2015. This is a common occurrence usually happening at weekends but today is the first weekday incident for a while. Is difficult enough to exit driveway onto Papanui Road with bus stop and 1 parking space to the right of the driveway. Often people illegally park to get coffee at Café Metro on the corner at Merivale Lane. I was forced to make a difficult turn out of the driveway along footpath and to avoid bus shelter to get onto road. Would help if the single parking space beside the bus stop was removed as having parked car and a bus arrive at stop completely obscures visibility and as I have a young family it really is a safety issue.
