Have lived in Hernando Cty many years and I know that in residential neighborhoods, you are not suppose to park commercial trucks, new neighbors moved in next door, they are renting, he is a truck driver for a major moving company and insists that he can park his 60' tractor-trailer in his driveway.
I have called code enforcement several times as have neighbors and code enforcement said "oh there are boxes on lawn, they are moving in". Of course,
code enforcement can't come out at 11:00 PM to see the tractor parked in the driveway.

Am I wrong in my thinking that commercial tractor-trailers are not suppose to be parked on residential property.......don't get me wrong, I know that this is his living, I do not want to deprive him of that, but he should be able to park his "rig" somewhere else other than in a residential property. I go to our local Walmart all the time and I see at least 6 or 8 tractors parked up there when not in use. I tried to tell him that it is against code and he boldly said he'll park whereever he wants to. He comes from Port Richey and said he never had any problems parking on his property and that he will continue to park his 60' tractor-trailer in the driveway.

I'm sure that this is a code voilation, but code enforcement won't do anything. Any other recourse for me?

That is code for Hernando county. It is in there.. do an advanced search.

If you aren't getting anywhere with the workers, go to the supervisor, if that fails call the county administrator or city councilman/woman.

It really isn't deed restrictions it is code enforcement. If you live in a deed restricted area, then the HOA should be handling it.

Cool Parking the big rig

I know it may be upsetting to you, but as the wife of a former over-the-road trucker it is difficult and very costly to find parking for tractor trailers. We lived in an area that at the time, was lime rock, 2 acre parcels and only 2 homes on the street and my husband who was only home 4 days per month could never park the truck (not the trailer) in the yard. There was never anyone going down the street, yet code enforcement and the sheriff's department would always come and tell him to move the truck. It was very hard. It would cost him over $50.00 per night to park the truck in parking areas. And Walmart does not allow truckers to park there - only when they are "shopping". They will call the deputies and you will be told to move and get a ticket.

I also sympathize with you not wanting the rig parked there and I could say well move into a deed restricted community - but then that would infringe on your rights. Is there a winning solution? Maybe some mutual agreements? It is very costly for him to find parking and you want your neighborhood free of big rigs, too bad you two can't work something out instead of calling code enforcement all the time, and him not listening to your pleas.

I am not on anyones' side. I just thought that you should try and understand the predictament he is in, too.

Default Resolved

Thank you for your comment, this situation has been resolved with the legal owner of the property and the sheriffs office. They were wrong and were told to stop parking their 53' on the road overnight, there were several near misses with cars, because drivers couldn't see this thing parked in the dark.

Who charged you 1,200 to do what?

Your mother could have done a quik claim deed and put your names on the property for 100.00
