DC Parking Authority Question - September 18, 2008, 12:16 PM

So a coworker of mine lives and works in the District, but her vehicle is registered in VA. Apparently her inpection as expired and she has received THREE $100 tickets in the past TWO days from the "meter maids". Two were from yesterday and the third was at about 7am this morning.

Can the district fine you for out-of-state inspection? Also, it seems rather excessive to get two tickets in the same day (if not three in two days) for the same non-moving violation.

She is looking for advice as to what she should do (aside from get the damn car inspected).

Yes the district can, unfortunately, fine you for out of state inspection. As far as the parking tickets are concerned, have your friend leave the first ticket on the vehicle all day that it is parked at that same address. You can only recieve one parking ticket per 24 hours for the same violation and same address.
On a side note have her go to the dmv and get a visitor parking pass for the time being and then find off street parking if she wants to keep her VA tags.

So technically she can contest the other two tickets?

Yes, I've gotten the same ticket in DC, they can give fines for inspections and registrations being out of date in VA and MD. She maybe be able to contest the 2nd and 3rd tickets if she can show she got the stuff inspected immediately, within a reasonable time.... But DC does not forgive its tickets easily, they need the $.

For when she doesn't know she wants it.

Not necessarily true. Its not 24 hours. Its more like 8.

maybe your friend should register their vehicle in the area where they live and work and this would not be a problem

I'd want to keep VA plates too based on the horror stories I've heard about the DC inspection stations.
