New York – Homeowners Sued For Parking Truck In Their Own Driveway
David and Arna Orlando are being sued by their homeowners association for parking their pickup truck in their own driveway.
The Kimry Moor Homeowners Association filed the lawsuit in August of 2013, claiming that the truck was not a personal vehicle. The Manlius, New York, development consists of 84 houses.
Kimry Moor’s regulations state that cars parked in driveways must be “private, passenger-type, pleasure automobiles.” Court documents show that Kimry Moor owns the common areas of the development, which include the driveways of all houses. Technically, the Orlandos can park their truck in the garage.
David says that his 2014 Ford 150 is registered as a passenger vehicle and that he does not even have a commercial license. The Orlandos’ lawyer, Tom Cerio, said: “This is a silly rule. It’s fair to say the association is definitely overreaching. And they are enforcing this rule for a personal-use vehicle, not a commercial vehicle.” Read more:
