A Seattle property owner upset about a car-share vehicle parked illegally in the parking lot of his duplex has erected a barricade around it and is demanding compensation from the owner.
Dan Smith said the car2go Mercedes-Benz has been parked in his lot since May 17, 2019. He said he gave Share Now, the company that operates car2go, two hours to collect the vehicle. After no response, he built a makeshift fence around it.
The company said several customers tried renting the vehicle on May 18, 2019 and could not access it because the barricade had already been put up. Smith is demanding the company pay $65 a day for vehicle storage fees, $300 for the barricade and $500 for “harassment fees.”
