A New York man is being sued by his homeowner association for parking his Ford F-150 truck in his driveway, rather than his garage.

The Kimry Moor Homeowners Association near the town of Fayetteville filed a suit against David and Arna Orlando in Onondaga County Supreme Court over the truck, the Post-Standard reported.

The association charges the truck should be in the couple’s garage, under the regulation that limits driveway vehicles to “private, passenger-type, pleasure automobiles,” the news outlet reported.

The association owns all the driveways in the community, court papers say. Attorneys for the association want an injection to force the truck behind closed garage doors, the Post-Standard reported.

Mr. Orlando, who has lived with his wife in Kimry Moor for about six years, said he uses the truck for personal, not commercial, use and that he’s not breaking any association regulations.

“This is absolutely absurd,” he told the Post-Standard.

Tom Cerio, attorney for the Orlandos, called the rule “silly.”

“It’s fair to say the association is definitely overreaching,” Mr. Cerio said, the Post-Standard reported. “And they are enforcing this rule for a personal use vehicle, not a commercial vehicle.”
