Your right, if it's parked in a designated spot it is tress passing to tow the vehicle... However HOA's can cite you which can ultimately wind up in the loss of your house with many HOA's.

I don't know where you all are from but this FML just says from the "United States". The United states is composed of 50 states which hold countless counties and cities. I am sure that you three don't know every law and so cannot definitely say that this is against the law. In my small county the ordinance defines an "abandoned" vehicle and any vehicle that is inoperable OR one that has set for longer than 48 hours. It makes no mention of valid plates, or were it is parked. Yea, they can have a running vehicle towed off your own land. It is selectively enforced. We are trying to get it changed. Also, most states allow agents of the state to go on private property to serve papers and other official business. This would not be trespassing in Kentucky.

39, beautifully said. I don't know very much law, especially not concerning property since I'm not yet a home owner, but it bothers me a bit when commenters get into arguments about law where they're possibly both or neither right.

Where I live, if it's on your property they can't say shit unless several complaints arise. After they will ASK you to do something with the vehicle. My dad worked nights so his car sat on the street all day, they gave us no warning and tried to tow it since it was on a public street. After explaining the car was not inoperable and was moved everyday did they put it down... After charging us over 100 dollars. We keep everything in our driveway now.

You probably mean impounded or confiscated, not repossessed. Repossession is for cars that have value and the potential to be resold. They confiscate POS cars that are eyesores.

I don't think Ford cars are that bad. My father had a 1990 Ford Escort for many years and it was a great car, very well built. Actually, he also worked at Ford, and he still says that the best car he has ever driven was a Ford Landau.
