Does anyone know the residential parking law for parking on the grass instead of the driveway in the front yard? Technically the vehicles are in his yard but it crowds my front yard. I live in a cul de sac with a small front yard.

Up north in some areas you are not allowed to park vehicles in your own front yard. You must park on the street. But as far as down here in Florida I have never heard of a law that you cannot park on your own grass. You may have to just deal with it. We cannot control what people around us do on their own property as long as they are within the laws of that state. You can do some research on the laws for the area around you to see if they are breaking any laws. If they are junk/parts cars then they may be breaking the law, other than that I personally do not think they are.

'Up North', that is a large area, Brewton? Atlanta? Memphis? I had Jury duty and the judge asked where we were from, one lady replied, "Up North", The judge asked her again where she was from? She came up with a better answer.

I'm all about parking, I have a long and wide drive-way, usually empty. My neighbors have a short narrow drive, get lots of visitors and pack the curbside and their delivery trucks block my drive. Neighbors gotta love them.

I guess it would be too unsightly to park their trucks on the other side of the driveway where THEY would have to look at them. Yes, it's very inconsiderate and un-neighborly, but they don't mind....Well, thanks anyway. :(
