When it comes to parking, there really is no love lost between neighbours — or perhaps, drivers, for that matter.

A heated exchange that took place in the parking lot of a local supermarket was recently captured and shared on YouTube.

The four-minute clip, uploaded by YouTube user Kazumaco, was uploaded on Saturday, January 26 and has since received more than 133,000 views.

The “brawl” takes place in a parking lot on East 1st Avenue and Renfrew Street, located near a T&T Supermarket.

Although the video begins to record partway through the conflict, it appears that while the driver of a grey minivan was attempting to reverse stall park into a spot, the younger driver of a black Honda Fit swooped in and took it away.

The driver of the minivan, who looks to be an older man wearing a cream-coloured jacket, allegedly opens the door and enters the Honda Fit, and begins to wrestle the other driver.

The older driver then manages to climb overtop the driver of the Honda Fit.

“Hey, we’re calling the police, stop right now!” says the person recording the video. A woman in the background of the video can also be heard making contact with an emergency dispatcher.

Both drivers manage to exit the vehicle but attempt to continue the conflict, only to be held back by their female companions.

The two male drivers break free and start fighting again, this time with one of the women caught in the crossfire.

The video ends with the two parties finally parting ways.

A number of profanities were exchanged in the process but fortunately, it looks like there were no major injuries.

Daily Hive has reached out to the Vancouver Police Department for further comment.
