I call 311 to try and get parking enforcement sent out ticket non RPP autos that take up the parking spaces on my block (after they've gone past the 2 hour limit of courses)... Our main problem are the MD cars owned by the drug dealers that deal on our block day in and day out. But I've been doing it for years and haven't yet seen a ticket be distributed... I've tried to present the proposal @ meetings, etc - if the dealers cars are continually ticketed, they'll have to eventually stop clogging up our block, but nada, zilch, zero. I've wasted an entire sheet of paper composing a list of confirmation numbers for the requests placed with the Mayors Call Ctr! It's a futile battle though. I'm convinced some areas are meant to, and are designated to fail.
Or, DPW may be too busy enforcing the new downtown meter parking rates (7 minutes per quarter, $4 for 2 hours). A couple of weeks ago, due to a meeting, I let my meter expire by 4 minutes, and bam, I had a fresh ticket waiting for me!

> Mr. Crawley, I don't see what is unclear. To avoid getting a ticket, residential parking restricted area or not, anyone who is parked in the district for more than 72 Hours without proper parking identification should get the display card. I would hope that you would want to have your family and freinds protected. If the police or parking enforcement drives through your area and notice out of state tags for two nights straight, the car could be ticketed. So I am suggesting that this is to apply to all. Happy Holidays too all! Samuel Crawley wrote:

> When you have a rental car, a guest staying more than a weekend, or you are changing tags on your vehicle, please go to the 5th District Police Station and get a temporary parking placard to place in your car's window. This placard will be good for 15 days and needs to be placed in the inside of your car on the left side of your windshield when parked in Ward 5.
