Stop drivers from parking over dropped kerbs

This petition had 16 supporters

Something needs to be done about the drivers who park in front of our dropped kerbs in front of our homes.
I have phoned the council and been in to see the police so many times regarding this issue and they just tell me to pay £174 to get a white line put outside my driveway which then other drivers can still park on if they want too, even after I've paid for this line out of my own money. It wouldn't bother me paying for this line if I knew that drivers would actually get fined for parking there once it's done, but they won't.
If a car is parked over your drive and it's blocking you from getting out then apparently they 'might' get a parking ticket but if your not blocked from getting out and just want to park your car in there then nothing will be done.
Its such a selfish act from the driver who is parking across someone's drives. I generally don't understand why they do it and I personally feel it should be made against the law to do so.
I feel that if someone does it and it's reported then their vehicle show be towed away immediately. If the car moves their vehicle before a tow company arrives then evidence of the crime should be able to be reported and they be fined for it.
I have had to get taxis on numerous occasions to get my children to school because someone had blocked me from exiting my own home. Something needs to be seriously done about this. It should be a punishable offence!
