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.

Thanks to Trey for sending from the above Brightwood Park: “I can’t imagine a more stereotypical parking job for this truck than being a foot and a half off the curb and six feet into the alley. VA plates. Been there two hours.”
Thanks to Andy for sending the poorly parked Revel above from Cathedral Heights.
Thanks to Lam Lam for sending:
“Can DC Parking parking department correct this confusing sign in front of the Darcy Hotel (1515 Rhode Island Ave NW, Washington, DC 20005 ) It’s hard enough finding parking.”
DC311 is on it, so hopefully fixed soon!

Standby for more info on the leaf collection schedule – which starts Monday.
A reader writes us on Saturday:
“Please let your readers know that they should avoid parking overnight on 4th St NW between K and L. Every few weeks there’s one or two break-ins, but this morning all but one of these cars had their windows smashed — 15 at my count.”
But also be consider where you park. Thanks to Ruth for sending from Capitol Hill. Read More
