HOA’s parking restrictions won’t allow teen to park truck in parents’ driveway overnight

Wednesday 12th, March 2014 / 16:31

UPDATE:

Missouri teen Matt Perry was told by his parents’ Homeowner’s Association that he couldn’t park his 1965 Ford in the driveway overnight. Below is the letter sent out by the HOA back in January asking for residents to “vote no” against allowing parked trucks, claiming it would decrease property values.

A Missouri teen worked two jobs to save up money to buy the ride of his dreams, a 1965 Ford pickup truck.

But after Matt Perry bought the truck, the teen ran into some problems with his parents’ Homeowner’s Association in their upscale neighborhood. There’s a bylaw that states you can’t park a truck in your driveway over night more than four times a year.

Perry told Fox 2 Now that his family could face more than $9,000 in fines, but he has options. The teen can change the rule if he collects 130 signatures from homeowners in favor of doing so, the story said.

So, why doesn’t he just part his truck in the garage? Perry says that’s where his parents park. On a Facebook page, “Save Matt’s Truck,” he explains that his truck doesn’t fit, and he’s usually the first one to leave every day and the last one home at night because of his “work/school/social” schedule.
