Default Diamond lanes

Ok, anybody know where to find the rules to park in diamond lane on busy street? Got someone permanently parking pickup in diamond lane on busy street 24-7. Has nice big driveway but refuses to park truck in it. I know some temporary park in them for few hours but, weeks on end kind of obnoxious.

Sounds like a phone call to the Sheriff or Wildwood Police since they are responsible for enforcement.

My thought is that it would be a traffic hazard to park in the diamond lane and would thus be illegal. The diamond lane is not wide enough to hold an auto, SuV, or truck, so part of the truck would stick out into the regular traffic lane, impeding safe traffic flow. Also none of the diamond lanes that I have traveled in are on streets that driveways actually open up on the street with the diamond lane. A call to the sheriff's department would seem to be in order.

Is the diamond lane the golf cart lane?

Where is this? .... never seen a diamond lane that runs in front of a driveway but haven't been everywhere ... unless the guy is parking in back of his house.

It’s bicycle/ golf cart/ walking lane, anything other than 🚗

Yes the are some diamond lanes in front of houses with straight driveways. This one in particular is way up north that can lead out to the big yellow church. Temporary parking not problem happens about everywhere. But, the truck sets there weeks on end.

You do not see it very often, but there are a few streets where the street has a golf cart lane that runs in front of houses. The streets Southern Trace and Woodbridge Dr in the village of Polo Ridge are two examples.

I just saw it today on my way back from Ocala. It's the new village they built NW(?) of Chatham Village off of CR 42. The one they built on the East end is Phillips Village.

OP, I see 2 violations here. 1) Parking in a designated golf cart lane 2) Parking more than 24 hours in street. I would call the office of Community Standards--751-3912 or Community Watch--753-0550 or Marion County Sheriff--732-9111. I know there have been problems like this before on regular neighborhood streets & not much could be done but since this is a diamond lane, I think it would be against our deeds & restrictions. We're not even supposed to be parking in our driveways.
