This family, coming from British Columbia and visiting friends in Mount Pleasant, got a rather rude welcome from the DC Government: a parking ticket for $1000. They parked their tiny trailer on the street, and Parking Enforcement struck, charging them with parking a trailer on a residential street. Yes, the fine for that is a thousand dollars, though surely the District Council did not have in mind little trailers brought into the District by tourists when they prescribed that draconian fine.
This family has been all across the country with their trailer, and had no trouble with it anywhere, until arriving in our fine town. I’m afraid their visit here won’t be a fond memory.”
