CAPE CORAL, Fla -  Almost a dozen commercial vehicles parked at one Cape Coral home has neighbors taking a stand.

People complain their street is turning into a parking lot and it's a blatant violation of city ordinances.

It's happening at a home in the 2900 block of Southeast 10th Place.

"It's very annoying," said Arthur Hardy.

Hardy's view from his front window is no paradise.

"We just can't look out the front window with all those commercial trucks," Hardy said about his neighbors.

On any given day Arthur says he has to look at nearly eight commercial trucks parked across the street.

They belong to the people who live at he home.

He says the trucks are there almost every night.

"We've been putting up with this for so long," he said.

Neighbor Steve Warner is furious.

"We are living opposite what is near a parking lot. There were eleven to twelve vehicles there, six of which were commercial vehicles," Warner said.

The city doesn't regulate how many cars can be parked at one home.

But they do have strict rules against commercial vehicles.

They are only allowed to be there for work related purposes, otherwise it's a violation of city code.

"It makes you want to close the shutters and not go out in the front yard," Warner said.

Fed up, Warner wrote a letter to Mayor John Sullivan begging for some action.

A city spokeswoman tells me in the past week, Code Enforcement has been out there five times and documenting the parking violations.

The people who live at the home are renters.

WINK News went there to get some answers, but they didn't want to talk.

We also called the owners of the home, who didn't return our phone calls.

Steve says he understands people drive work vehicles home, but the scene across the street is too much.

"We want to make Cape Coral nice," he said.

The city hasn't issued any citations yet because they wanted to make sure the commercial vehicles were being parked at the home everyday.

Now that they have confirmed that, they mailed a letter to the homeowner warning them the situation needs to change or face fines.
