Topic: Street Sweeping/Towing
After parking and forgetting about my car over the weekend, I went looking for it on Tuesday morning to find it had been towed for being in the Monday street-sweeping lane. My fault for sure, but there’s both a $45 ticket for being in the lane and a separate $100 ticket issued half an hour later. Is this legit? It seems like the $100 ticket (which has no information in the ‘violation’ and ‘comments’ section. The pink tow slip that accompanied it is completely blank as well.) should trump the $45 one?
Also while the signs do mention that the lane is a tow-away zone, it seemed worth including that the DPW site only mentions the possibility of a $45 ticket. http://dpw.dc.gov/page/street-and-alley-cleaning
Thanks for your help! At this point I’ve paid so much in parking tickets I may as well have just bought a parking spot at my building…
