Is there anything you can do about a confrontational neighbor who drives recklessly?
I have a neighbor who for whatever reason is driving recklessly and I don't know what I can do. In the past month
he's crashed his car into a halfway house at the end of the block (from park- burning rubber then crashing straight through a fence), rear-ended one neighbor by trying to parallel park his car (with plenty of room) and then left his bumper in
her bumper, and now he's sideswiped another neighbor's car, taking off the mirror.
I have read this thread
. I don't know what his problem is nor do I care to speculate. He should not be driving.
Here are the complicating factors:
I live in one of those strange areas of LA where millionaires literally live next door to people near the poverty line. Because it's LA proper, not a little municipality with a sheriff, we have the LAPD and they are not helpful. When he crashed into the halfway house (which is for pretty low-functioning people and is kind of a shabby privately-run place) the cops didn't even administer a breathalyzer. I cannot think of any good reason why they wouldn't run such a basic test- he was completely out of it and refused an ambulance. I can't fathom that being the case if he had run into one of the fancy new houses on the street.
He's a weird, confrontational guy. He'll get into a shouting match with neighbors over parking and he has at least one active lawsuit with one of the other neighbors. He has no family that anyone knows.
So far these accidents are happening all hours of the day and night. There's no likely or safe time.
Is there anyone who can help stop this?
