"As we are near the end of the terrace, the last few yards of the road outside our house have got double yellow lines.

"We have some very weird neighbours a few doors down.

"The curtains are always drawn, and when I've seen them in the street, the father clips his children around the head, yells at them etc, which may or may not be relevant.

The motorist revealed that their neighbours have an old and noisy car.

The motorists continued: "Anyway, they have a really noisy car. The tax disc is up to date, but I'd be amazed if it got through an MOT.

"One headlight is smashed and more importanly, it makes more noise than a tractor when it is started up.

"They also have a disabled badge for the car, which means they have a marked, reserved bay outside their house.

"At about 9pm every night, the husband moves his car from outside their house to any free spaces outside our house, or a double yellow if there isn't one free.

"I presume his blue badge means this isn't illegal."

Shockingly, they try to start the car and sit there for at least 5 minutes at 5:30 or 6am every morning.

The motorists continued: "The noise this car makes is bloody staggering.

"I can sleep through a reversing bin lorry outside, but this car wakes me and DH up every morning without fail.

"I've spoken to my neighbours on both sides and they have said the same thing.

"Obviously, they know it is disturbing people, which is why they don't start the car up outside their own house.

"I don't know where they are going at that time, but it isn't to work, as they are back about 30 minutes later when the car is returned outside their space.

They ended the post by saying: "It has been going on for a few months now and it is starting to drive us mad.

"We both bristle in the evenings when we hear the car being moved outside our house, knowing it means we'll be woken up.

Other Mumsnet users were all saying the same thing in support of the original poster.

One said: "You could contact the noise people at environmental health.

"They will come out and monitor the noise and slap him with a notice."
