Petworth Parking Sign Madness

Check out this parking sign madness on Upshur Street in Petworth – 2 hour parking allowed in a Metro bus zone.

I wonder which one the parking attendant will notice as they write you a ticket? Or which one the judge will agree with if you contest it?

That reminds me – have you contested a parking ticket recently? The last time I did, using a clear photo of parking sign madness like this one, I never heard back from the DMV. The ticket just disappeared.

Anyway, as this sign is right before an actual bus stop, with a bus shelter and everything, do the neighbourhood a favor if you’re parking outside Domku: Find a clearly legal spot.

    The same thing happened to me when I contested a parking ticket 5 months ago. I just never heard back from the DMV. I’m not asking any questions though …

    Sometimes it takes forever, but I’ve never just not heard back on a contested ticket, and I’ve successfully fought 4 now. Check, there’s a place you can check to see if you have any tickets outstanding on your car.
