  • There are signs like this next to the new West End library construction, and I’ve always wondered about the fact that none of the “check all that apply” days are checked—much like this sign. Perhaps the city thinks that if none are checked, that is supposed to represent that parking is prohibited every single day. But, I think that would be the better argument over semantics.

    • When I last got these signs printed, I went to check the applicable day’s box and the woman at the police station stopped me, saying if I wrote on the sign at all it would invalidate it. The boxes didn’t come checked off when I printed it, so I left it blank. Not really sure what the official rule is here, but that was just what I encountered.

    • Semantics applied to an end date? No, dates have meaning namely which day can I stop being ticketed. If you can get out for a bad address, I don’t see why you couldn’t for a bad date.

  • If you were somehow ticketed on 2/30, I think you would have to suck it up and admit that you were fated to be ticketed.

    The bureaucratic version of Final Destination.

    It took me way too long to realize what was wrong here.

  • This reminds me of the time I went through the airport with my DC license and the woman checking my ID at security had to ask the guy next to her if they would accept a Drivers License from Columbia as a valid form of ID…

  • It’s an invalid placard anyway. As of May, 2012, “Handwritten ENP signs are no longer permitted in public space”. All such signs are supposed to be printed at DDOT locations.

    • Perhaps D.C. agencies are exempt from this requirement? (Wouldn’t it be DDOT doing the alley restoration?)

  • No because you would be in an alternate universe where 30 Feb. exists.
