A G Street parking-ticket mystery
By William Steiner
A running theme in recent letters about parking tickets in the District was that the Department of Motor Vehicles is enforcing laws aggressively.
In my case, I think the department went beyond aggressive. I received a notice of an unsatisfied parking ticket for failing to answer within 30 days of date of issuance. The notice showed a doubled fine of $50. The ticket was issued on July 2 at 7:52 a.m. for parking at an expired meter in the 400 block of G Street NW.
The only problem was that my car never was in the District on that date — it was parked in my driveway. It is not possible that it could have been ticketed, so there is no way I could have answered the ticket.
As an aside, my car has been in Washington only one day during past three or four years. That day was July 1, the day before the ticket was written.
