Now it looks like DC is going to (finally) start charging for the use of its public streets there. Based on by observations, it’s definitely a large fraction of all-day commuters. I don’t specifically have a problem with the streets being used for all-day parking, I just think DC is giving up a potential source of revenue for fixing the streets and sidewalks.
No rate or time limit is currently posted on the meter. I’m working with DDOT to find out.
I’ve always wondered why DC was giving away street parking for free here:
