So you buy a house for $1.5 million and can't park on the street because someone thinks it looks ugly. Never mind that cars on the street would help reduce the serious speeding problem we have in our neighborhood.

Note that you can park a basketball hoop on the sidewalk, blocking everyone's access, for years. Presumably no one thinks that is ugly ... or dangerous.
