Above is the back of the sign

Following the frustration we spoke about earlier this week.

From DDOT:

“The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) today announced the implementation of an enhanced Emergency No Parking/Reserved Parking Sign (ENP/RP) program. The enhanced signs provide information in a clearer format to help residents understand exactly when parking is restricted. The enhanced signs also provide updated instructions for posting and verifying signs to ensure correct placement.

The new signs will be in effect in the public space, Friday, June 1, 2018. Between June 1 and June 30, there will be a transition period allowing holders of long-term reserved parking permits, such as construction sites, to switch all current signs to the enhanced format. During the transition period, Transportation Online Permitting System, (TOPS) users are encouraged to prepare for the enforcement phase by familiarizing themselves with the enhanced signs. All ENP/RP signs must be in the enhanced format by Sunday, July 1, 2018 when DDOT will begin enforcement. The TOPS system will temporarily shutdown beginning at 5 pm Thursday, May 31. During the shutdown the system will be unavailable to print ENP/RP signs. The system is expected to be back online within an hour.

“We are constantly looking for ways to improve the customer experience with DDOT and these new signs are another step in that direction,” said DDOT Director Jeff Marootian. “These new enhancements improve the TOPS interface and clarity of the signage, and should eliminate some of the confusion people encounter when requesting no parking signs, and parking in areas where the signs are posted.”

ENP/RP signs are used by individuals or businesses who have paid to temporarily occupy public space at various locations for a certain time limit. All permits are obtained and issued through (TOPS). DDOT’s Public Space Regulation Division worked closely with various stakeholders and the community to create the following key enhancements on the front and the back of the signs.

The front of the sign includes:

Specific days of the week that are restricted
Specific hours for the restriction
Location and number of spaces
Owners’ contact information

The back of the sign includes:

Cleaner layout and readability
Photos for sign verification
Photos for how to post signs
Information on verifying ENP/RP signs online

Questions about the signage should be directed to the Public Space Regulation Division at (202) 442-4670.”
