Both of you. You for "undo care and attention" and the other person will be fined for parking on the wrong side and blocking off the driveway. Marcy Under no circumstances would a "parked car" be At Fault for an accident that you could have avoided by simply using due care as required under the circumstances. The fact that the car is parked illegally is between them and the constable and has no bearing on liability to you. All you had to do was have the illegally parked vehicle removed and you would have avoided any risk of collision, but you intentionally assumed the risk by taking matters into your own hands. Also, many jurisdictions do not prohibit "wrong side" parking, except on divided roadways.
