Parking Meter Relief?

WASHINGTON D.C. (WUSA) - City Council Member Jack Evans wants to rollback the parking meter increase that was passed in Spring.

The Ward 2 representative is getting more complaints about the meters than any other issue. It costs $2 to park for one hour in premium parking zones. He wants to bring it back to when one dollar bought you an hour.

Evans said he also wants to allow for free parking after 6:30 pm. Currently, parking meter enforcement can dole out the expired meter tickets until 10pm in premium parking zones.

"I work around here and I see them giving out tickets all the time. It's outrageous and they're just preying on people like vultures," said JoAnn Slaight on a Friday night in Chinatown. "Last night at Massachusetts Avenue at 20 minutes before 10pm, I was going to my car and I saw a meter person giving out 10 tickets. "
