  • That’s not a legally sufficient “no parking” placard. Here’s the law:

    DCMR 18, 2407.25 Signs prohibiting or reserving parking shall be consistent with the design approved by the Director and shall display the following:
    (a) Sign number;
    (b) Name of the issuing agency;
    (c) Contact name and telephone number;
    (d) Duration of the parking reservation or prohibition;
    (e) Hours of the parking reservation or prohibition;

    Anonymous no-parking placards, such as this one, used to be the rule, but are no longer allowed. Too many District contractors refuse, however, to change their ways.
