Metered AND Zoned Parking?


Recently, I noticed that the south end of Mount Pleasant Street has both a metered parking machine, and signs that instruct “2 hour parking maximum, zone 1 permit holders excepted.”  Huh?  Does this mean that, as a Zone 1 permit holder, I don’t have to plug the meters?  Or simply that I can plug the meters for longer than 2 hour stretches?

Excellent question that I don’t know the answer to. But this is a great example of some of the incredibly confusing parking signage in this city!

DDOT policy is to put meters in front of businesses, residential parking in front of residences. In front of the shops on Mount Pleasant Street, it’s pay-to-park, no exceptions. In front of the adjacent apartment house, it’s RPP. 
Confusing, certainly, but that’s because of this cheek-by-jowl mixture of shops and residences.
