Legally but Dangerously Parked

The home at south east corner of 5th and Kansas in Roswell,NM either had guests on this UFO festival weekend OR they chose to park their own vehicles directly obstructing traffic who were making a right turn from Kansas or headed east on 5th. We almost hit the white car you see in picture as it was the first object in the road as we made the turn. It is possible that visitors of Cahoon Park across the street parked in front of the residence, but we did not see anybody in the park.

Take a look at the parallel parked vehicles again. There is enough room for a motorcycle to pass without swerving into oncoming traffic, BUT not enough room for even a small car. I believe it was probably the guests of the homeowners visiting on July 4 weekend.

I must say I would not feel any remorse if the white car got rear ended alerting the car owner of his inconsiderate, stupid, and irresponsible action. When somebody parks like this, they are either very stupid or just do not care about  inconveniencing and endangering the many motorists who tour Roswell prior to the evening commencement of the famous UFO festival.

Also, I wonder if any legal blame could be placed on the owner of poorly parked car in the event of a fender bender?

Finally, when was the last time any of you rented a car that had a fuzz buster(radar detector) included at no extra cost? I know it saved us a speeding ticket at least once alerting us to the presence of a cop that we did not see hidden in a parking lot on Union.
