“Dear PoPville,

There is metered parking outside my office (corner of 10th and G Streets, NW). It also falls in the variable rate parking zone that the city is experimenting with.

Two of the spaces (parkmobile zone 22651, spaces 0616 and 0617) are frequently given tickets (as in over 10 per day) and appear to be targeted by the parking enforcement employees.

The spaces have dual-zones: 2 hour parking and commercial zone parking within a subset of time. Difficult to quickly read the signs.

Basically, people think they can park there and when they go to the kiosk and enter the space number, it lets them pay for parking even though it is illegal for them to park there. Typically, the parkmobile app and kiosks will not allow you to pay for parking in a space when it is illegal to park there.

Just want to try to rectify it so folks don’t have their days ruined by getting a ticket!”
