not too sure WHAT the rules are but.........when a pickup truck parks on the street, there isn't much room for my little car to pass by it on the narrow streets inthe neighborhoods, so maybe if they get clipped a couple times, maybe they'll park where they belong!

Call Community Watch. If there isn't enough street space to pass "the fire engine test", the truck's owner will have to move it.

In the 30 or so years that I was associated with fire fighting, I can't recall ever being called to bring a fire truck to a parking situation to see if it fits through.

There were a couple of times that, while on fire calls, we made our own path through cars that were blocking our way.

I was a fireman in New York State for only 4.5 years, many-many years ago, but I do remember being taught in either "The Essentials of Firemanship" or "Pump Operator" training I received that if any vehicles are blocking your access to providing emergency services (i.e. like getting at a blocked fire hydrant) that you should plow the obstructing vehicle out of your way! I don't know if it was legal to do so or not, but either way I wouldn't want it on my conscience if when I was driving the fire truck I refused to move a blocking vehicle and someone died or was seriously injured as a possible result of it!

Did you plow trains out of your way as well? I doubt it.

I'm talking specifically villa neighborhoods since that's what I contacted the CDD guy about, there is no enforcement there - no violation in their view regardless of how the rule reads, just to clarify
Why would it be any different for the Villas? Are they not also public streets? Regardless of what deed restrictions state, they do not have force of law on public property. There are always cars parked on the street in my Villa.

Personally I would prefer it if all homes were the same color, size and model. Makes for nice ambiance.

When the fire alarm sounds, the fire chief is the supreme commander of law enforcement regarding anything that has to do with the fire. If he said, "move it," We said "aye aye sir."

Two answers:
1) We had no amusement parks with choo-choo trains in our district, so we never had to find out!
2) You can't stop a Trane!

Love to be proved right. I have a great situation in that I am in a corner villa on a short dead end street. I can fit 3 or 4 cars along my wall on that street without blocking anyone.

I asked a Sumter County deputy if it is illegal to park on the street here in TV. He said yes .... and cited the statute. He said that routinely they do not do so but 'if a neighbor ... or another party .. complains they may be forced to do so or may chose to do so.'

You can park your car on the street.They will not give you a ticket. Been parking my car on the street for over two and a half years. do not understand the problem with this. It is a street,where cars drive.

I would love to read this "statute" because I do not believe it exists. There is no way sumter county has a law that says you cannot park on a public street. Please give us the statute he cited. Thanks.
