German Homeowner Buys Two Smart Cars Just To Keep People From Parking Near Driveway

  German Homeowner Buys Two Smart Cars Just To Keep People From Parking Near Driveway He bought two cars, just to keep them parked on either side of the driveway, like bookends. Sure, the cars are just tiny Smart Cars, and used ones, from what I can tell, but the dude still bought two functional motor vehicles for the sole purpose of keeping them parked on a public road on either side of his driveway.

The unwanted open door policy reportedly came about after the homeowner's association discovered a neighbor was letting tenants live in their garage. Obviously, many residents have security-related concerns about the new rule, which offers no alternative means of protecting their belongings during the day. Some are ignoring the edict in protest, while others are getting proroactive.

"Fine, let me give you the $200 fine right now," neighbor Shally Ia told Fox 40. "Give me a month so I can get my stuff out, and I might as well clear everything out and leave the garage door open permanently because there is no point of having a garage door then."

Homeowners associations often get trashed for being overly bossy with homeowners , and the latest Big Brother scandal to make headlines is no exception: An HOA in Auburn, CA, is demanding that residents keep their garage doors open .

A homeowners ’ association in Auburn, California has rescinded its imbecilic policy that allegedly forced owners to keep their overhead doors open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, The Sacramento Bee reports.

Resident Fred Waidtlow echoed those sentiments to KCRA 3,telling the station that he'd already moved all of his belongings inside because the rule essentially made his garage useless.

"If we have to have this open from 8 in the morning to 4 in the afternoon, anybody can help themselves and steal you blind," he said.

KCRA 3 made numerous attempts to chase down the authors of the notice, but the Auburn Greens Unit 1 Homeowner's Association has so far refused to comment on the matter. A legal expert contacted by the station said that while the policy isn't illegal by the book, a judge would likely strike it down as unreasonable if residents were to challenge it in court.

That's not much comfort to people like nine-year-old Jason, who told Fox 40 he's "still a little worried" about his stuff getting stolen.

"I don’t think it’s a good idea because they are going to steal my bike," he said. "I’ve got an electric scooter, I've got an electric wheelchair, I’ve got all kinds of stuff. So, I just don’t think it’s very good to have it open."
