In that case it's not actually damage if you let all the air out of all four tyres, is it?
If I was going to resort to that, likely as not, I'd remove the valve cores and leave them lying within sight of the car. The chances of the driver knowing what they are are negligible....

Just walk over it with your crampons on.

Of course!
That's why I have been sliding about so much recently.
It's been ferociously icy around here of late, and I forgot to don my crampons....

I usually bend their wing mirrors in the direction they're least keen to go in and then pull up all the wipers. I doubt it gets through their thick skulls, but the minor inconvenience might at least reflect the more significant inconvenience they're inflicting on anyone trying to get by their thoughtlessly parked car. If there's any litter, I may take the opportunity to construct a little shrine to their stupidity on their bonnet.

Of course, as mentioned, they leave their car there long enough some passing drunk will be a bit more belligerent with their displeasure. Never mind.

That's a footpath and a cyclepath. In some ways, I hold the nearby gastropub responsible. Those cars are probably all their customers. If I'd been along there, my pedal might have accidentally made contact with the door as I squeezed past in the busy A road.

Polyurethane foam might be interesting.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

I heard of a wedding prank gone wrong where the groom's mates froze four cans of builder's expanding foam, and then shut them into the couple's car where they defrosted (the cans split when they're frozen, like a can of Coke).  The car had to be written off; there is no way you're going to get that stuff out once it's forced its way down the air vents, under the seats, up under the dash etc.

The local press are obviously running out of things to write about that they made this a story to itself.
(There's a deli just behind the camera that does really good foccacia.)
