7501Re: Tickets Written on Cars with Visitor's Parking Permits
- Mar 1, 2010Vicki,
Please keep in mind that many of those tickets are not written by police
officers with MPD. They are written by Parking Enforcement staff with
the Department of Public Works (DPW). Commander Greene has provided a
point of contact for you to assist with identifying which agency is
responsible for the tickets. (See Below)_______________________________

Please call the fifth district at 202 698 0113 on Monday, Sergeant Crews
will look into the matter as well as which officer issued the ticket and
if it was in error.

I had that problem as well. Seems that the police always come up from behind, see the tag and start writing the ticket then. When they get around to the front they see the visitors permit but still leave the ticket. What we did was to leave a note in the back window, with big enough writing letting them know that the car has a visitors permit in the front window. Maybe that will help you. I have heard that you can send an explanation (maybe with a copy of your visitors permit) and they can make a rulling off of that but you may need to check first.
