Pickup Trucks banned from parking in Driveway by Homeowners Association

2008 Ford F 150 Towing Old F 150

It's a sad day for pickup truck drivers in Texas. A neighborhood outside Dallas has banned most pickup trucks from being parked on driveways. Only owners of Lincoln Mark LTs, Honda Ridgelines, Chevrolet Avalanches, and Cadillac Escalade trucks can park in plain sight in the Frisco, Texas subdivision.

One homeowner has been threatened with fines for parking his new Ford F-150 in his driveway. The man appealed the fines since his Ford F-150 is virtually the same vehicle as a Lincoln Mark LT, but the association maintains the Lincoln is sold to a different class of people than the Ford.

It's not news that neighborhood associations can stop you from parking a trailer, RV, or broken down vehicle in the open, but it seems a bit ridiculous to prohibit a Texan from parking a brand new truck in his driveway. Hopefully the 2008 Ford F-150 will fit in Jim Greenwood's garage. Otherwise he will be forced to sell his truck or move.
