I have more important things to agitate me than someone parking in THEIR OWN driveway. My garage is full and I leave my car in the driveway at all times. I have enough space to park four cars if I wish. If a neighbor parking in their own driveway bothers one, then I suppose the color of one's golf cart and what they wear is at the top of their worry list also.

If they are on the driveway, I don’t think it’s an issue. Perhaps the carport is full of stuff and no room for vehicles. As long as they don’t park at the curb, it’s ok.

What about laving a car on a driveway for months as Tony and Anna has done nearby?

No such code, anywhere in The Villages. Anyone can use their driveways to park as many cars as they want to. Does not matter what you think it looks like.

Parking on the street is annoying when people block the road or cart lane, but in a driveway does not bother me. However, people who burn wood in fire pits is really inconsiderate. I like to be able to put my windows up when it is cool without smelling smoke or having my home smell like smoke.

The worst I've seen is a snowbird's car on jack stands all summer long with a cover on the car.

Just trying to prevent flat spots on the tires. I left my car for 6 months without moving when I came back the tires had flat spots, luckily they rounded out after a few hundred miles of driving.

I'm seeing the same, some neighbors trucks are too long to even fit in their garage. When the garage door is open I see why. People brought 40 years of stuff from their big house up north. Did they not realize Florida homes do not have basements or attics? Time to down size and minimize the clutter. It is a eyesore to see so many cars in driveways.

Jack stands and/or car covers are an eyesore. Use the garage!
