Out-of-control Scottsdale HOA slapping boots on cars
June 20, 2008 by Frank
Now the scumbag Scottsdale HOAs are slapping boots on residents’ cars and charging to remove them!! Lawsuit anyone? This is about the worst violation of private property rights I’ve seen from an HOA yet. The story is picking up steam and over a quarter million people nationwide are following it – read the full story here:
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 700 homes.
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 sticker?
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 penalized 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 dollies, 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.
