WTOP Reports: “District resident ordered to remove driveway”

View Larger Map

Since we frequently judge curb cuts I thought this story would be of interest. WTOP’s Mark Segraves reports:

“A homeowner in Northwest D.C. is being ordered to remove his driveway that’s been in front of his house for nearly three years. The reason: the homeowner’s handicapped mother has died.”

The article discusses whether or not DDOT’s letter was rude but I think the more interesting part of the story is that the city can make you remove a driveway (as the driveway was only permitted because of the owner’s handicapped mother in the first place).
