Dear PoP – Holiday Parking Question

“Dear PoP,

Here’s a question the readers of PoP might know the answer to — I tried a quick scan of the DC DoT’s website and couldn’t find an answer.

December 24th is a parking meter holiday, which is great news for me. But does it apply to other no parking signs between specific hours? For instance, along Madison and Jefferson Streets where they line the National Mall, there’s no parking on Monday through Friday from 1am-10am, and 3-hour parking otherwise. Would one still get ticketed if you parked there on Friday the 24th at 8am, even though it’s a parking meter holiday? Since there are no meters there my gut instinct is no, but I figure there are people who might know a definitive answer one way or the other…”

I believe on Dec. 24th not only is it a parking meeter holiday but other limited parking follows a holiday schedule. Do you guys think/know if you park by the mall on the 24th despite the Mon. – Fri. regular restrictions?
