It would seem to me if there is not enough room for you to get around the cup di sac, there isn’t enough for your local fire department either. That would be illilegal not to mention a serious safety concern. Bring it to the HOA’s attention and or your local fire department. I would think the fire department would intervene on that parking situation.

Doing stupid stuff to stupid people and documenting it (IE calling the HOA, if they even care) usually results in having to look over your shoulder for a while. If your story is true and they're actively uncooperative, then drop the issue for a while.

1. Check to see if the local PD has jurisdiction over the HOA/city parking laws. We had local Barneys in one HOA sub we lived in that loved the revenue from enforcing the parking "laws". Nothing gets dumb @sses to move their cars like a stack of parking tickets.

2. If that doesn't work and you know there's no cameras around, it's a shame when vehicles randomly have issues like not starting or tires that are almost flat.....
(True story, had a guy that would hunt (poach) the woods behind our houses and park in our subdivision. After a run in with both me and our neighbor and neither the fish cops nor the real cops taking any action, he pulled in for an afternoon hunt and came out in the dark to 4 missing valve stems. This was basically the only "private" place to park and access these woods, and I've never seen his truck parked at any of the other areas in subsequent seasons, so I think it worked.)

My son lives in an HOA. He and others park their cars in the street even though the rules say not too. RV's are allowed if they're behind the front of the house and behind a fence.

I have a friend that lives on an HOA about 1/2 mile from my son. Zero cars are allowed in the streets and there are none. RV's only allowed in the street for 24 hours to load.

It seems to boil down to how much the rules are enforced.

People buy houses in HOA neighborhoods and then are afraid to ask them (and if it comes to it, force them) to enforce their own rules??? Rules that aren’t enforced are worthless, and you aren’t getting what you’re paying for with your fees. It’s always claimed that HOA’s help protect everyone’s property values. Ok, then get out there and enforce the rules!

It’s not YOU who should “go to war” with your neighbors, it’s the HOA. And the HOA should leave the identity of the complaining party out of it. Who complained is irrelevant, the rules are known to all and should be enforced.

Address the problem year round. Inform the HOA about the illegal parking and your safety concerns for emergency purposes. Tell the HOA the neighbors do not need to know anybody called. They are just out there enforcing the rules.
That way nobody knows who or if somebody is calling.

You have 235' of driveway. Is there anywhere you could turn around or make a turn around area along the driveway?

I had a similar problem at my previous house. Except for the HOA part, we didn't have one. My solution was twofold. generally I could manage a modified 3 point (30 point?) turn using the driveways at the end of the cul-de-sac. You mention they are empty, so that seems like it could be an option. Pull in their driveway then back out the other way.

Other option I did a few times was just back it in the whole way. I knew I could do it since I had to back it out more than once when there was no way to turn around lol.

I would NOT call the HOA. Glass houses and all that stuff, burning bridges with neighbors is generally not a good idea if it can be at all avoided.
