After more than a year of relaxed parking restrictions, the District of Columbia will resume enforcing all parking regulations today. That means you can’t get away with staying an extra 30 minutes after the parking meter has expired. Also, all DC driver licenses and ID cards will need to be renewed by July 1, if they expired during the pandemic.
Hope you are 👀 your vehicle! Today ticketing starts for:
🚫 Expired parking meters
🚫 Expired RPP
🚫 Expired vehicle tags
🚫 Parking in no parking zones
🚫 Registration of residential out-of-state cars
🚫 Street sweeping violations

Ticketing was suspended at the start of the coronavirus pandemic because of low traffic and to protect public works employees, but the District had restarted parking enforcement in school and loading zones in March. However, there is some good news for folks who have outstanding tickets or keep forgetting that parking enforcement is now a thing again. Mayor Muriel Bowser announced a ticket amnesty program that will run from June 1 to September 30. This program is available for those who have received tickets for parking, photo enforcement, and minor moving violations before September 31, 2021. You still have to pay the original ticket amount, but all penalties will be waived.
