HOA tows heart attack victim's car from neighborhood - News3LV
"Virginia says she also heard her car was towed because it was in the same spot for more than 72 hours. "Just because my mom doesn't drive her vehicle very often, doesn't give them the right to tow it," says Jason Lenderman, Virginia's son."
Of course this story doesn't have all the facts, but this sounds like one of those all-too-common situations where the owner is outraged and the media coverage implies that the association is being unreasonable, but when all is said and done the association has the law on its side and they can do this is if they want to. So it's just a question of whether they want to put up with the bad press.
