Continuous dangerous parking on a blind bend obstructing vehicles from both directions

Reported in the Obstruction or hazard on road category anonymously at 14:38, Fri 27 December 2019

Sent to Warwickshire County Council 2 minutes later

Although there is a driveway attached to this property at 16 Southey Road, Rugby CV226HF as well as the ability to park elsewhere this vehicle continues to park half on and half off the path on a blind bend making it very dangerous for vehicles approaching in both directions as you have to use the wrong side of the road to get round it, I can see an accident happening here before long. This has been happening for months now since the new owners brought the property.
