Since July 4th I have seen five patrol cars from the DFHV (Department of For-Hire Vehicles) out patrolling H Street, Union Station, and Navy Yard. I have never noticed cars from this agency before and they stood out from the usual mix of random agency patrol cars. The cars also look to be newer. (more…)

June 1st sighting
Pretty sure I ran into the NOMA flasher this morning at 2nd and M NE at about 7:25am.
