THAT’S JUST WAY TOO MANY CARS IN ONE YARD!

HOW MANY VEHICLES CAN YOU GET IN YOUR DRIVEWAY!


Okay, I see why the city of Houston wanted to pass an ordinance limiting the number of cars in one yard. I was in Northwest Houston Saturday on a story when photographer Mike Foster and I spotted it. It was a yard with not 3 or 4 but 10 cars. I couldn’t believe it. I asked a neighbor if the house was some kind of mechanic shop and he laughed and told me the family just had a lot of cars. It was horrible. 10 cars in one yard. Then as the day moved on I began meeting those who live there. Apparently, the young daughters who appeared to be 17 had gotten married and they and their husbands lived there with the girls’ parents and other siblings. That’s just way too many people and cars in one house. But I was shocked when they complained about the neighbor next door not cutting his grass. I don’t even think they had any grass without the cars on their lawn. I even captured the frustrated look on photographer Mike Foster’s face. He thought they had too many cars as well. Is that too many people and cars at one house or am I sticking my nose in other people’s business?
