A MOTORIST claimed he is terrified after raging neighbours began leaving sinister notes on parked cars.
The notes were stuck to several vehicles in Bedminster, Bristol and were apparently written on behalf of ‘the residents of British Road’.
Many drivers removed the notes from their cars, so it's unknown how many had been affixed in total.
One of the notes read: " Dear vehicle owner/driver, the residents of British Road have noticed that you park regularly yet do not live on this street.
“Please be mindful of the residents who wish to park near their properties. We respectfully ask you to park your vehicle on the street you live on in the future."
Shockingly, one of the notices was attached to an unmarked van with a 'BT engineer on call' sign inside the vehicle on the dashboard.

One resident of British Road, who wished to remain anonymous, said to Bristol Live: "Parking is an absolute nightmare around here, and people spend a lot of time driving around looking for a space, so I understand people get frustrated, but this is a bit sinister.
"Whoever wrote this does not speak for everyone on this road. How do they know those who own the vehicles don’t live nearby?
“And because parking is a nightmare here, you sometimes have to park a fair distance from your home.

"There are too many cars and not enough streets. But the main thing is, whoever posted this note doesn’t seem to realise they have no greater claim over the road outside where they live than anyone else."
The parking disputes in Bedminster have been simmering for a while, but have worsened since the Covid-19 outbreak.
And it's not the first time drivers have found notes on their cars in Bristol.
Last year, a van parked in a street near British Road had a sign complaining that its owner had parked there to avoid the Southville Residents Parking Zone.
