Don't damage or vandalize their vehicles. You have to live there with these people. Just because they are not being helpful by moving their cars doesn't mean you are excused to damage their stuff.

Be an adult.

Get the HOA to deal with it. After all, that is what they are paid to do, right? Enforce the rules that EVERYONE agreed to in writing when they moved in? You are not the bad guy for wanting people to do what they promised to do.

You'e the one that's going to lose if you get into a pissing match. All those days you're away camping, or even at home at night, your stuff is vulnerable. By taking any action other than politely asking for cooperation, you're inviting blowback - that could be minor or it could result in deep grief. Just asyin'.

Obviously your neighbors aren't reasonable people, so it would stand to reason that they would not react reasonably to the HOA request to move their cars.

I would get some of those furniture mats from U-Haul and wrap the fenders of the cars that block access to your property and do the CindyGus suggested weaving and bobbing backup. If that doesn't get them to move, then maybe you should move out of Moronville.

Having dealt with unreasonable neighbors, I can attest that the move away method works.

I don't understand why driveways are empty either. I suppose it's more convenient for them to park on street rather than driveway and they don't care if it's an inconvenience to others or safety issue with emergency vehicles. I've lived here for 9 years and it was never a problem until a couple years ago when several new neighbors moved in.


Are they one car width drives? That would explain the street parking.

call the hoa, and prepare for a war.
nothing good will come of it.
just back down the street. or if room turn around on your property.
third choice is to load at storage place, as it is close.

Living in a HOA I would have the management company of the HOA handle it. The board members generally don't get involved.

For some reason, I have a nearby neighbor that has a F-150 truck that stays parked in the guest area for months on end and does not move. After a couple of years of this, the HOA manager sent out a letter stating the guest parking area's are for guests and housekeeper parking.

Now, that truck gets shuffled around to the four or five guest parking area's. Not sure why they don't park it in their own double driveway with a double garage. It doesn't bother me but I haven't seen their garage door open yet to see if they have two cars in there or not.

I like living in a HOA as I like the privacy, guards, gates, etc. Most neighbors are accommodating as we have been living in a couple of HOA's for 30+ years. I keep the coach in a storage facility and load and unload there, it works for us.

Safe travels,
MM.

No, they are double width driveways with room for 2 cars in garage and 4 on the driveway, yet they park both cars on the street. Lots of folks in the neighborhood do this and I don't understand why.

That is odd behavior.

Perhaps they don't want oil dripping on the garage floor on the driveway... they would rather have it drip on the road surface instead.
