insanity ensues ...
So the owner of an Audi had his car booted
outside his house by his HOA (Home Owners Association). Instead of
paying the fine (which was wrongly assessed by a 3rd part parking
Nazi organization to begin with according to the
story), he decided to play a game of chess with the "Schmucks".
From there the insanity ensues and snowballs into more than Dolly
Man could have imagined. The following is the intro paragraph
from a couple of sources. Read the rest below off of the links
to the message strings on a couple of threads.
As I told myself I'd never live in a HOA community
here I am. After a year here they forced upon us that we had to pay
for parking passes to park outside. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ There's over
Gee, I wounder why they did that?
So you have to display your pass or you get booted, by an outsider
company not associated with the HOA, they just won the contract. As
the schmucks drive though they look for the obvious outsiders
looking to park (visitors) and boot them, and milk the cows. "That
will be $140 Sir to remove the boot."
Well, it's just a long day @ work, your mind is busy, you park and
don't put your pass on your rear view. They throw 2 boots on you, a
large display sticker, phone # and $140 removal fee. I've parked in
the same spot for 3 months, always displayed, they know the car, a
extensively modified Audi parked in the same spot for 3 months with
a displayed pass. It's a no brainier I have a pass.
Gee, I wounder why the pass isn't a permanent
Now, why wouldn't I always keep the pass hanging from my rearveiw?
Being in the top 10 auto theft capitals in the country, I'm not
comfortable DISPLAYING where I live when the community is displayed
in the largest characters on the pass.
The plastered WARNING sticker on the window mentions you will be
pentilzed to the fullest of law if you remove or damage the boots.
So I called the cops.........only one.....but she said I can not
damage the the boots, however nothing illegal about removing them.
You know the case, if you don't pay up evenly you'll get towed,so.......
I'm just going to get some f-ing dollys, install them and push the
freaking Audi right into the garage you bsaterds. Give them a call
to come get their num nut boots..........................and the
Audi is undergoing a semi-rebuild....I don't need them off...they
won't bother me keeping them on....I don't need to drive it.....a
waiting game means nothing.
I own my home, they can not come on the individual property unless I
grant permission, and they can not tow it as it'll be in the garage.
The Arizona Parking Solutions, (A.K.A. the APS), says they
offer to communities in Arizona, proven and cost effective
parking enforcement. They do this by shaping the
behavior of community residents and guests by clearly
communicating parking rules (really) and holding violators
responsible for their actions in a fair and consistent manner.
Fair huh? Ok. Take a look at how they define fair
on the message boards.
