* There is one sure-fire way to find yourself on the receiving end of this: Park in front of a Fire Hydrant. Fire Fighters have no time to politely ask you to move your car, so, they'll just smash the window and thread the hose through. Or, they'll force your car out of the way with one of their trucks[[note]]Which keep in mind, have more than enough horse power to shove your sedan out of the way[[/note]]. And for bonus points, if you think you can get away with suing the department for the damages... [[ShmuckBait good luck]]. Not only will you lose the case horribly, you'll also have to pay a hefty fine for your poor parking decision, on top of the repair cost. Oh, and did I forget to mention that your insurance rates may even go up as a result?

* On ''Series/1000WaysToDie'', there was an episode where a jerk surfer took a handicapped parking spot to the displeasure of a disabled veteran; a disabled rights activist said that when he sees this, he usually leaves a "nice note" on the car with his key.

* One episode of ''Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle'' saw Hal trying to get himself attacked so he can [[MuggingTheMonster be a hero]]. He tries picking a fight by stealing a parking space...only to realise he stole a handicapped spot from a wheelchair user, who keys his car as he embarrassedly drives away).

* In cities that receive a lot of snowfall during the winter, such as Chicago and Boston, residents have to spend hours shoveling snow to create a parking spot, and thus usually "reserve" it with chairs or trashcans. If you decide to remove the clutter and park there anyway, residents ''will'' retaliate. Consequences range from harmless pranks such as [[http://uproxx.com/webculture/shovel-driver-perfect-craigslist/ dumping snow over your car]] to vandalism and even ''fights''.

** Similarly, anyone who parks right on the rear bumper of an ambulance (you should give them at least six feet) is obstructing the loading and unloading of the stretcher, which can cause a critical delay in a life-threatening emergency. It's not unheard of for the medics to just unload the stretcher anyway -- directly onto the offending car's hood. Oh, and good luck with that ticket for obstructing am emergency vehicle.

In RealLife, seeing someone park where they shouldn't (like a disabled parking spot) or stealing the parking spot you've been patiently waiting for is [[ParkingProblems incredibly frustrating]]. In fiction, a character might choose to take immediate revenge on the parking infringer, often in a humorous fashion (giving the audience vicarious satisfaction).
