“Dear PoPville,

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

“Dear PoPville,

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?”

Thanks to Luis for sending from Columbia Heights.

I think it’s a toss up. You?

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

“Dear PoPville,

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
