There are presumably bylaws for the HOA which say things like "we can charge dues" and "we can build up assets for the general benefit of the HOA" such as maintaining the common areas.

In dealing with the law it's hard to prove a positive, but this attorney says u-turns are legal in NC where not prohibited. This conclusion follows from the general principle that unless there is a law against an action, you can do it.

It is important to be certain about where that point is, because insufficient speed can earn you a ticket just as excess speed can.

Under state law, the maximum speed limit is 35 MPH inside municipal ...

You should check with a local attorney to get the most correct answer as these things can vary. Delaware and North Carolina, at least assuming the business is run from North Carolina.
