2 year old littering fine

Sometimes people overuse the expression ‘smdh’ or shake my damn head and sometimes you simply must shake your damn head. Like this one for example. This happened to a friend of mine:

“We received this notice of violation from DPW in the mail yesterday alleging that our 2 year old committed a littering violation because a piece of mail with her name on it was found on the ground in the alley. I called the DPW Inspector that issued the ticket today and explained that she had inadvertently issued a ticket to a two year old and she refused to rescind the ticket.”

Ed. Note: We have discussed this practice many times in the past but this is the first time we’ve had a 2 year old cited!

Feels like just yesterday it was ChooChoo7 but it’ll soon be six months!

From DDOT:

“The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) today announced the DC Streetcar will begin Sunday service September 18, the day after the 11th annual H Street Festival.

This announcement comes as the DC Streetcar marks its six-month milestone this weekend, Saturday, August 27. The system began passenger service February 27 with more than 8,100 people joining Mayor Muriel Bowser for the inaugural ride on the new system. The start of passenger service marked the return of streetcars to the District for the first time since 1962. (more…)
