I went in to the city today at lunchtime and had an interesting situation when looking for a carpark.
I was driving down the street looking for street parking because I didn't want to pay for parking. I was behind another car driving slowly who I assumed was either looking for a building or a parking space as well. Eventually I spot a 1hr free parking spot on the opposite side of the road next to a driveway. The car in front of me is still moving slowly and, without indicating, turns into the driveway. Unsure if they are going into the driveway or turning around I opportunistically do a u-turn and park in the available spot. A few moments later the car comes out of the driveway and parks behind me with their hazard lights on. Unsure if they feel they have a claim to the spot I hop out of the car and walk over to hear them out. The driver gives me a thumbs up and refuses to make eye contact. Assuming I'm in the clear I move my car forward so that they can try and fit behind me then go on my way. I have drawn a high quality paint image trying to visualise the situation for your convenience: https://imgur.com/a/tBw7apo
My question is, did I do the wrong thing by taking this spot that the other person saw first or am I in the right as I got to the spot first?
It is worth noting that they did not go into the driveway and turn around immediately, but drove in and must have done a 3 point turn as it took them at least ~10-20 seconds to turn around.
