HOAs love a good fight, even when they are wrong.
A Clearwater police officer is facing an ultimatum in her East Lake neighborhood: Stop parking her marked police cruiser in her driveway, or pay hundreds of dollars in violation costs.
Officers take home their marked cruisers to speed up response times and to deter crime.
State law says HOA’s can prohibit commercial vehicles from parking in driveways but an opinion issued in 2005, by then State Attorney Charlie Crist , a law enforcement vehicle is not considered commercial.
The HOA had no comment.
