D.C. disabled parking meter enforcement set to begin
WASHINGTON (AP) - Parking officers in the District of Columbia will soon begin enforcing meters designated for drivers with disabilities.
Beginning Thursday, the red-top meters will be reserved only for drivers who display disability cards or licenses on their cars. Those drivers can pay for the meters twice as long as the allotted time, as long as they pay for the time.
This replaces a system that allowed free parking at metered spaces for vehicles driven by disabled drivers.
There are about 4400 red-top meters in downtown Washington and parts of southwest Washington near federal buildings. The meters were first introduced in February.
