Traveling down Porter St today, I noticed a series of “Emergency no parking” signs that have been put up. Unfortunately, as is apparently common, the company failed to comply with DC regulations which requires 72 hours notice for all unmetered parking spaces. These signs were put up on January 31st for “no parking” beginning on February 1 (less than 24 hours notice). Sorry about those tickets, folks. Additionally, the regulations clearly state that you cannot put your signs on trees (see below) or other people’s property. In both cases Capitol Paving Company of DC has failed. Given that their website declares that they have been in business for 20 years, it’s surprising to see this.
Oh ya, the good news is that it seems likely that the street is going to be paved.
Update: It seems as if many cars have been ticketed on Porter St. today (Feb 1). One unfortunate soul is pictured below. Also, unfortunately, it does not appear that the paving being done is to complete the unfinished water main project.
