“Today, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) announced the next phase of the curbside pickup-dropoff (PUDO) program will focus on commercial activity. DDOT has partnered with curbFlow, a mobility company that coordinates commercial operator pickup & drop-off activity to available curb space in real time. As part of the project, curbFlow will research and analyze the demand at nine locations throughout the District where commercial loading and PUDO activities for delivery services often leads to double parking and other dangerous behavior.

I wonder if your readers know if a dumpster permit allows for 4 spots to be taken from the street for 2 ½ months?”
@DCDPW this guy just got towed off of North Capitol & deposited right away on to the street cleaning side of Adams St.. which means he’ll be towed again today. When I confronted the driver of the tow truck, I got a ‘🤷🏻♂️not my problem’. Not ok. @PoPville pic.twitter.com/l4xCWkqTcO

Tammar reported yesterday to DPW:
“this guy just got towed off of North Capitol & deposited right away on to the street cleaning side of Adams St.. which means he’ll be towed again today.”
There were many, many takes on whether this was cool or not. Many takes. Tammar later responded to one:
“The city had, in this scenario, the option (on the same street) to put the car where it would 100% NOT get a ticket today OR where it would likely get one (and prob towed again).”
And DPW retweeted that response: (more…)
I have a little bit of a situation on my hand at my house. I have an unwanted guest parking in my spot. They’ve been there since Monday night. I don’t want them ticketed/towed for fear of retaliation. What should I do?!?”
Joel reports yesterday around 5:30pm:
“From 14th and Corcoran during the evening rush. One covers the bike lane, the other the motor vehicle lane. Now that’s teamwork.”
Thanks to Joel for sending:
“From Mass Ave NW between 10th and 11th. This parking job is a work of art, the way it so perfectly captures what’s wrong with car culture. They couldn’t have gotten it more perfectly centered in a crowded sidewalk during the morning rush.”

hahaha this is a new one even for me! Thanks to Haleigh for sending over the weekend from Insomnia Cookie’s H Street, NE location.
Got a ticket the other day parked on this side of the road, Wednesday at 10:22 A.M. Had to think about this one for awhile but to me, this sign means no parking from Wednesday at 9:30 P.M. to Thursday at 11:30 A.M. However, after the ticket, I believe this sign is misprinted and should say A.M. instead of P.M. (more…)
Someone was *really* pissed their “no parking” signs were ignored. Two cars on Belmont St NW near 16th St with the signs tucked under their windshield wipers, tastefully annotated.”

Following is a letter sent to multiple government agencies:
“I am a DC Ward 4 Resident who is alarmed at the onslaught of Free2Move cars parked on Petworth’s streets. At Gallatin and 9th Sts. NW last night, there were Free2Move cars parked on every single corner of this intersection!
On my block, a Free2Move car (plate R-38355) has been parked for FIVE DAYS. Then another Free2Move car showed up last night on my block (plate R-38432).
Every. Single. Household. On. My. Block. Owns. At. Least. One. Car.
You know what that means? (more…)
