Noting the posts that mention vehicles in driveways: I live in a small town in Missouri, and here you can not even keep a car in your driveway that is
not registered and street legal without covering it. I lost my license, so I didn't bother to renew the tags on my car, just left it in the driveway
for lack of anywhere else for it. Now, it's not some junkpile sitting on blocks, but a nice looking, running sports car, so I was surprised when my
landlord told me the city had sent him a letter saying I had to cover it or he would be fined.
So I contacted them, & they told me that just because the tags were expired, I couldn't park it in my driveway without covering it. They then went on
to tell me it had to be a certain material (I forgot what), no plastic tarps, and had to be fitted to the car. I thought WTF, okay? So I go to the
store and pay 40$ for a car cover and put it on. Not 3 weeks later, the car cover disappears. About 2 days after that, the landlord gets another
letter, fined if I don't cover it in so many days. So I go buy another one and cover it again. Guess what... a few weeks later that one disappears,
about 2 days later the landlord gets a letter... I went through the same thing over and over for months. I even tied the car covers down to cement
blocks next to the wheels to be sure they weren't "blowing away", and still they'd disappear, and just like clockwork the landlord would get a letter
2 or 3 days later. I finally got fed up & had to just rent a storage unit & put the car in there.
The landlord said they were probably just doing it to mess with him because he was an out-of-towner and had bought alot of properties in town, & some
of the city council here didn't like outsiders so they were hurassing him & his renters. He then told me a whole list of other things these guys were
doing, & I was utterly appalled at some of the things these "city inspectors" and the like were doing. Some of these guys are simply despicable beyond
description and have no limits as to what they'll do to people living in their town.
