They park it right behind our driveway, and since its so big, it makes it nearly impossible to back out. Also, because its big and wide, it blocks up the street width wise.

So, it's a very narrow street then. Gotcha.

In our town, you may not park a commercial vehicle or any kind of closed trailer on a residential street or even in your own driveway unless it's a police cruiser or over a lunch break. You must find parking elsewhere for any commercial vehicle. Even if it's a regular car with a pizza delivery sign on the top. In addition, no vehicle or trailer of any kind can be parked on a city street for 48 hours at any time of the year. The city ordinances are quite clear on the matter and they are enforced. The only exception is a smaller U-Haul type moving truck and that is allowed to park overnight for one night only and only if it's for the homeowner's personal use.

The rules used to be much looser. Then we had a neighbor who parked his entire company's fleet of large commercial vehicles on our street every night, holiday, weekend. Neighbors tried to talk to the guy about it and he told them where to go. People went elsewhere alright -- straight to the city alder for the district. Enough people complained that the alderperson proposed a new parking rule that prohibited large commercial vehicles from being parked on residential streets over nights, weekends and holidays and the city council voted it in. He then paved over a good portion of his front lawn as a driveway and parked the fleet there to get around the new ordinance. More complaints, another new rule. Neighbor had to remove the parking lot from his front yard. Neighbor eventually moved out to the country and paved over his land for a parking lot.

I was going to comment about how over the top this is, until I remembered we have a community here called Gold River.......you can't park ANY vehicle on the street or in your own driveway overnight, ever. It has to be in the garage.

We used to have a truck driver friend who would stop in & stay a couple days whenever he was in this part of the country. He would park his truck down by the mailboxes in the guest parking. Some "neighbor" called the police.



What, I'm not allowed to have company stay over & park where they are supposed to?
