"Please do not park any vehicles here, otherwise it will be deflated."

Is it legally correct to deflate any vehicles by private party?

I have seen this Warning Board in a private premise.

I think so.Owner of private property is entitled to take any action in his/her premises.I have rarely seen this kind of warning.Generally I see "Park at your own risk".

Frankly, this seems to be a nice way to deter those illegal parking..

Will you find nice even if your vehicle deflated?

Hey I don’t want to check PM, left parties are already checking him on every stage of policy making.

I am afraid of being type casted as “leftist”.

I'm assuming that the tires will be deflated, not the whole vehicle. Although having an inflatable vehical that you could deflate and take on a bus/train/plane would be neat....

I don't know how legal this may be - I suppose it varies by country. Probably not legal in the US at least. Regardless, it seems rather inefficient. The goal of the property owner is to keep the property free of cars. If someone parks and they deflate the tires, doesn't that make it harder to move the car? In the US the standard remedy is for the property owner to call a towing company. The towing company will remove the car at no cost to the property owner. In order to recover the car, the car owner will be forced to pay a fee to the towing company, covering the cost of towing. Which is roughly comparable to paying a fine. Except of course that it's hard to refuse to pay, since otherwise you don't get the car back.
