“Dear PoPville,

I recently returned from a 10-day vacation to find that my car was towed for parking in a street cleaning zone on P Street NW. (I expected a ticket, not to be towed.) The kicker, though, is what happened next: The city towed me to Massachusetts Avenue NW, where my car proceeded to rack up an additional $400 in rush hour parking citations.

Why on earth would the city tow my car to one of the district’s busiest streets? I’m guessing the answer is simple: Easy revenue (fairness be damned). Oh, and for the record: I’m challenging it.”
