Ignorant, selfish bastards! (in my personal opinion). They would rather see a child on a tricycle divert into the street or a mother pushing a carriage struggling to drag her baby through the hell strip simply because they, with their ridiculously-oversized air haulers, happen to be the Absolute Center of the Universe and are therefore entitled to park wherever they damned-well please.
I've said it before, and I've said it again, and I've even said it within the context of current events: the sidewalk is a publicly-owned pedestrian resource, not a bloody personal staging area for trophy trucks.

From this previous post.
To that end, I encourage you to have a chat with your neighbors if you see sidewalk parking happening near you. On our short stretch of subdivision street extending from the nearest intersection to our cul-de-sac, we have nineteen children. Nineteen children just in this one little area, who are out running around and playing with each other on a daily basis. If I see anyone impeding the activities of those children, including via blocking sidewalks, we are going to be having us a neighborly chat.
