My son just learned about the Coral Gables no-truck policy and immediately was intrigued, so I thought I’d write about it today since it’s a hot topic recently! Coral Gables banned pickup trucks from parking in residential neighborhoods back in the 1960s. Over the years, people have fought against this zoning law, but none of the attempts have been successful. However, last month the Board voted unanimously to have the City Attorney write a new truck ordinance which would have to be approved by the City Commission. If approved, residents would allegedly be allowed 1 truck per household as long as it has a hard top on the truck bed, is kept in a driveway as close to the home as possible, and with the bed facing the home, not the street. So now my kids and I have a new favorite car game besides Punch Buggie and the License Plate game – Coral Gables Truck Tag!
