The Milk Man replied: “king for not blocking the bike lane”

As one who has been documenting A LOT of dangerous driving over the years, all I can say is this:
We’re gonna need a third sign…
Thanks to Dr. K for sending around 9am from: “Shaw at Rhode Island and R Street, NW. I really can’t explain it. 3 police cars are there – not sure if anyone got hurt.”
Someone parked in front of no-parking signs for so long that they actually repaved *around* the car!
What surprises me the most is that the city (or the construction contractors doing the work) never had the car towed, even though it’s been easily a week or more.
Does anyone know what’s happening with all the road/construction work around the neighborhood the last 6 months or so? I saw one sign on 4th St SE saying water line replacement, but none of the other streets have signs, and have heard various rumors.”
