The District Is Messing with My Ride

How’d I end up with a $30 ticket today, when I have my Outlook calendar set to remind me to move my car each week before the street-cleaning period on my block begins? Because DC changed the street-cleaning period sometime in the last few days, and I didn’t notice the sign had been altered. You can see in these photos that the dates and times are stick-ons and thus presumably subject to change according to somebody’s capricious, self-adhesive, fickle-ass fancy.

For what it’s worth, this is the first time the street-cleaning restriction has changed in the four-and-a-half years I’ve lived on my street, and now it’s changed twice in a month. (Street-cleaning goes into effect March 1, but there’s usually a grace period of a couple weeks into the month before parking enforcement staff start ticketing.)

Man, screw this noise. I’ma make some calls and see if I can’t find out when the city posted those new signs. Those new stickers, I mean. Jerks. I had plans for those $30. No justice, no peace!

  1. Send your info (name, ticket number, date of ticket etc) and contact info to kevin.twine@dc.gov. We made the 2nd sign change to correct an error and we realize it caught some in a few neighbohoods off guard. I’ll do what I can.
