Many don't allow trucks parked overnight anywhere that can be seen from the road. So even in your driveway is against HOA rules. I would never live in a place like that.

Alot of them have an extremely broad classification of commercial vehicle. It starts as a reasonable regulation to prevent people from creating eyesores by leaving stuff like old utility vans and beater work trucks parked on the street but alot of the places get pretty crazy with it. This is why HOA's can kiss my ass. Everybody who kicks in money for my mortgage can tell me what I can and cannot park in front of my home. Unfortunately in some areas there are not many other options to be in a safe neighborhood with reasonable housing, but I don't know why anybody would ever pick that if there are other options.

The cost of fuel to operate a 6000 pound 400 horsepower half ton that does 0-60 in under 7 seconds is kind of like the price of oil changes for a Porche 911. If you have to ask you probably can't afford it.

Never mind HOA's. Here in CT, in the town of West Hartford (kinda snooty) you can have a truck, it just can't be your company truck with logos or lettering on it.

I've always had mixed feelings on HOA's, until we bought our first house. I never thought I'd be a fan of them, but I now understand the benefits. We are not in a deed restricted community, and although I keep our yard immaculate, as well as my neighbors, there are a few dirt bags that don't give a crap about their yards and it certainly doesn't help anyone else's values. It doesn't cost much to keep a decent yard, and it certainly costs nothing to have common decency for your neighbors, and not park a crappy rape van on your front lawn.

I understand that HOA's get carried away, but if we lived in a deed restricted community, the guy 4 houses down wouldn't have an Army green house with black shutters. We have to look at that s-it every time we come home.

When I first started sleeping over at my wife's while we were dating I left my 04 Dakota Quad Cab parked out front over night. Nice truck, rimes, tires, 5K in accessories. Didn't look like a beater work truck or anything. There was a ticket on my windshield the next morning. Turns out the borough had some restriction about parking commercial vehicles on the road. Which is weird. It's not like it's a snooty or really upper class area or anything, it's a working class neighborhood with alot of contractors. But nothing that wasn't an SUV or passenger van was allowed on the street between midnight and 6am.

Didn't matter, a couple years later someone actually figured out that the border where the stupid borough that set that rule actually started was on the other side of the street and did not include us.

The cost of fuel to operate a 6000 pound 400 horsepower half ton that does 0-60 in under 7 seconds is kind of like the price of oil changes for a Porche 911. If you have to ask you probably can't afford it.

There's a house down the street from inhabited by young renters. They've developed a habit of parking right on the lawn diagonally. I'm not some kind of busybody, but that gripes me and makes the crappy neighborhood look even worse than it is. The house next door to it also has renters. Some asshole parked his motorcycle smack dab in the middle of the sidewalk for about 3 days. I did sneak a loogie on his seat and called the cops. Now the house next door to me is up for sale. Did I tell you the older guy who lived there croaked? If it ever gets a for rent sign out front, I'll throw it in the trash.
