My question involves towing laws for the State of: Florida
Last night we had two friends over for dinner. We knew that cars were not to be parked in the street, so we ran outside and instructed our friends to park in our driveway behind our cars. Later that night we heard our friend's car alarm and ran outside to see the car being towed away. A man in a car labeled "parking enforcement specialist" came and told us that we were blocking the sidewalk. We received no notification that cars would be towed for this. The car was not completely blocking the sidewalk, in fact only a piece of the trunck was hanging into the sidewalk. Anyone could easily walk or bike by. I feel like this is a violation of our rights as homeowners. Can the HOA really come onto our personal property and remove a vehicle that had only been there for a couple of hours? There is no guest parking in our community, and the driveways (single family homes) only fit two cars. What are our rights as homeowners? The HOA is run by a new developer, as our community is not finished and was sold by the original developer.
