We have six covered parking spaces in a back alley on private property. This is an ongoing issue we're now dealing with. There's only a few of us here so no contracts with towing companies.

Right now there's a Range Rover sitting in my space and last week it was a brand new Jeep Sahara with no license plate.

Do we face any legal risk by having these vehicles towed?

Long time ago we lived where we had one space and the rest was street parking in front of the house.
This dickwad that lived 2 blocks away owned a cab company and would park his cars in front of our house and leave them for 3 days at a time.
They were always freshly washed - until I would go out and water the parkway that had a convenient strip of dirt on the curb side, made sure the pressure was maxed.
Completely mudded out, rims and all.
He eventually got the message and moved them 3-4 spaces forward in front of someone else's house. foreheadslap

Windshield waxing is a good one though.
Maybe shove a stick into the valve stems.

Vehicle is on my property so vandalizing it would amount to shitting on my front porch and I could be charged.

I just want to start towing, but amazing there's some sort of legal gray area here when someone else is essentially trespassing and impeding entrance. socrazy

Post more bigger signs.

Escalate slowly.

Then I would put up obstacles, making it harder to park illegally..

Towing would be your last resort.

Why go out of my way to post additional warning?

The drivers of the vehicle very much know they're not supposed to park on private property. Further, there's ample parking in the area but these people are too lazy to walk up a SF style hill.

So you can imagine what a bitch it is to come home with a carload of groceries and see some random vehicle in your space.

As far as posting obstacles, the bums steal anything left in the vicinity of the alley.

I believe the CAVC (vehicle code) simply requires a sign be posted warning illegally parked cars will be towed citing the VC. Any tow company will likely tow when the appropriate sign/complaint is made. Can't research now but I am pretty confident in my memory of this code violation/tow.
