Thanks to a reader for sending the news from DDOT:

DC Parking Meter Rate Increase

Most Rates Rise 25 Cents Per Hour

(Washington, D.C.) The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is reminding residents and visitors that parking meter rates in the District are increasing. Under legislation passed by the City Council, parking meters that previously charged a rate of $1.00 per hour will now charge $2.00 per hour. The rate at all other parking meters in the District will increase by 25 cents per hour. For example, if it previously cost 25 cents to park at a meter for one hour, the rate at that meter will now be 50 cents per hour.

DDOT is in the process of updated the 15,453 meters in the District to reflect the rate increases. All of the meters are expected to be updated by April 30, 2009.

For those who drive does this sound ridiculous or reasonable?
