There’s a junker in the parking island. Can the HOA have it towed?

If it belongs to a nonresident, who has no right to park there in the first place, absolutely. If it belongs to a resident, and if our requests to relocate it go unheeded, it can also be towed, provided it’s rarely driven or maintained so poorly as to cause a potential maintenance problem for our parking islands (e.g., leaking significant amounts of oil). Our published policies prohibit long-term storage of such vehicles in our parking islands. However, if the car belongs to a resident and is regularly driven, we really can’t quibble with its esthetics. The most we can do is politely encourage its owner to keep it in his or her own garage.
