Dear PoPville – Parking Suggestions for non DC Residents?

Dear PoPville,

I’m a bit confused, and I’d love help on a issue related to DC parking. My boyfriend lives in Virginia, and drives to visit me on the weekends in Columbia Heights. My street is not zoned, so any cars are welcome to park there, however he has received tickets for failure to secure DC tags. He is not a DC resident, nor does he plan to move to DC, but he does visit each weekend, and therefore falls within the twice in 30 days rule. He’s successfully secured a ROSA for the last couple of years, but this year it appears he has been denied. He doesn’t fall under any of the reciprocity permit options, so we are really at a loss. I understand the spirit of this rule, but what other options do Virgina residents who frequently visit the city have?
