If I understand correctly you should be thanking the officer because if you were driving on FL roads without a properly registered vehicle it should have been impounded.
I can't remember which state I saw PAPER dealer temp tag on a car traveling the highway, BUT it had no numbers or identifying marks on it. Stated only "TEMP TAG - Tag applied for" on the bottom line and otherwise was a real pretty advertisement for dealership. I imagine that some type of paperwork accompanied the Dealer Advertisement with "tag applied for" temp tag to make it leagal.

I'm still trying to figure out what jurisdiction the LEO had to enforce (probably non-existent) parking regulations on private property.

By the way, when was the last time you heard someone say:"I am going to retire and move up north."

Sarcasm key off.
ummm the in-laws did just that. They left MI over 40 yrs ago and moved to FL with all the kids. Kids are now grown and they retired and moved back to MI. Thou right now they do the snow bird thing because his body cannot handle the snow and ice at all so for him they go back to FL for the few winter months. If it was up to her they might have moved all the way to Alaska to keep it snow and ice as long as possible. She's the type that wears shorts in the winter ....

More power to them. They are the exception to the rule! Besides, they can always snowbird.

I once proposed to my wife that we go see snow. Her responded:"Hope you have a nice trip." I didn't go.

Rick
I seriously doubt the issue was "parking on the white line", but rather about the vehicle tags...

that was just a little bump in the road of life , we both got a chuckle out of it. I do like the climate and people down here will definitely probably retire here. we are on the way back up to Indianapolis for a couple of weeks any suggestions on nice parks

I think the heading on this thread is misleading. "beware of parking your toad in private parking lots kissimmee fl"--- if you have just dealer tags and park crooked to draw the attention of a conscientious public servant who risks their life everyday on the job.

There, I think it's much more accurate now.

If it was a privately owned lot, why was the officer there? What was and/or is the difference between a private parking lot and your driveway??

Gutsgolf: It's in the Georgie Boy manual, "Try to avoid smiling at bumps in the road, other less discerning RV owners will think you are up to something"

Enjoy...

Fishy, I'm a retired LEO from Ohio, state laws vary, but here I have no authority to enforce traffic laws, including parking, on private property, include accident reports, unless the vehicle traveled from the roadway onto the private property during the crash. Just my 2 cents.

Funny thing, I was stopped by a female officer recently, said I ran a red light. I pointed out that the light turned green and I started into the intersection and the light went red again, no yellow and there was a problem with the traffic light, only one car could pass. Her reply "that's not my concern". Really, all these years I was always told that traffic control devises were?

Cheers
