Revised Parking Fine Structure Takes Effect with New Fiscal Year

Thursday, October 1, 2015

(Washington, DC) The District Department of Transportation (DDOT), Department of Public Works (DC DPW), and Department of Motor Vehicles (DC DMV) today announced plans to begin enforcing a new parking meter violation fine structure. The new fines, approved by the Council of the District of Columbia in July as part of the FY 2016 Budget Support Act, take effect today, October 1, 2015. 

The fines affect illegally parked vehicles in commercial and residential areas across the District of Columbia. The following parking meter infractions are subject to the new fines:

·        Illegally parked at a meter, meaning not parked within a legal space

·        Failure to deposit payment at a meter

·        Overtime parking at a meter longer than the posted time limit.

Fines for the above infractions that were previously $25 are now $30. 

Vehicles illegally parked in neighborhoods where residential parking permits (RPP) are required will also face higher fines. RPP fines increase from $30 to $35.
