Keeping your car registered outside of DC
I’m a relatively short-term DC resident (I’m not planning on living here for more than a year), and I decided to keep my car registered elsewhere for insurance purposes. I purchased a parking spot near my work, where it’s more convenient/safe/easier than finding street parking, and I occasionally leave my car on my street at home overnight or on weekends (never during hours listed as restricted). This morning (Monday at 1:50 AM) I got a warning that my car has been spotted twice within 180 days, and that I had 15 days to register my car in DC. Is there any way to get around this? Can I really get a parking ticket during un-restricted parking hours?
