I saw a car park this weekend at the end of a block at 3rd and I St NE and get a ticket with 30 min for being too close to the stop sign at the end of the street. That car was then towed away only a few hours later only to have another car park in the “spot” a few minutes later.
DC law is you have to park at least 25 feet short of a stop sign but there is no sign marking the distance or staying no parking in this location. Read More

I need parking help.
I have a zone 6 residential parking pass and park on a zone 6 residential block. However, I have received two tickets in the past two months for “failure to pay the meter.” It’s in MVT where the blocks alternate between meter and residential. I was under the below sign. Am I missing something or receiving incorrect tickets? Is this normal?”
Tom Sherwood breaks the news on twitter at 12:58pm:
“Veteran Ward 2 DC Council member Jack Evans resigned today, stepping aside in the face of an almost certain Council move to expel him Jan. 21st over ethics issues that have dogged him for two years.”

Have readers have had similar issues receiving their Visitors Parking Pass (VPP)? In 2018 I never received mine after registering in November 2017. I called DDOT and they said they made a mistake and will resend to their printer, which would take 3-4 weeks, then I’d have to pickup at their offices in SW. Read More

This past week has been crazy booting and towing by the city. Yesterday there were 6 on our street booted in the AM and towed by the afternoon. We saw a ton of tow trucks today as well. We live in Bloomingdale. Is this happening in every neighborhood? Just seems bizarre all at once after months/years of really nothing.”
Another reader asks:
“Was shocked today when I found my car was booted for $100 in past due parking tickets. Apparently I under paid one ticket by $10, and had an outstanding street cleaning ticket of $45 from July that had doubled. Read More
Welp sign of the times I guess :(
