Pepco Illegally Monopolizing Parking?
For the last four or five days, the Pepco substation in Logan/Shaw has blocked off a half block of parking — using only cones — as they update their facility. They periodically do work here and usually go through the normal procedure of reserving spots and putting up signs. Is it legal for them to simply put cones on the street and restrict parking without demonstrating any permit? I’m pretty sure a normal business can’t simply do that, but perhaps they get a ‘free pass’ as a utility?
