16th & Newton NW

A reader reports:

“Earlier today – saw the aftermath of crash at 16th and Newton. I haven’t seen anything on the news about this – hope the biker is ok! The ambulance drove away slowly – good sign or bad sign? and (preempting possible PoPville comments!):

Didn’t see license plate therefore can’t tell if it was a MD driver. There is a bike helmet in the road so presumably the biker was wearing a helmet (not shown in photo because I cropped the people out)”

“Dear PoPville,

This car parks nightly, illegally, in front of my building. I called and spoke to parking enforcement today. They told me that if a person can’t find parking and has a zone sticker, they are allowed to park in a no parking zone. That’s insane! It really isn’t difficult to find parking around here, and after seeing this car dozens of times in this spot over the last year, it’s obvious that they’re treating this as their own personal parking spot.

311 routed me to parking enforcement today, and they routed me to a supervisor – who is in vacation until mid-January. That supervisor’s voicemail gave a another for another supervisor, and that number is of course disconnected.

Have you or anyone else heard of this unwritten (maybe it’s written??) rule that parking restrictions only apply some of the time?”
