DMV cautions: Check parking stickers by July

(Published June 17, 2002)

Department of Motor Vehicles officials are reminding residents who park in restricted residential parking zones that they may need to update their current residential parking sticker if redistricting has changed the ward in which they live.

The city’s moratorium on ticketing redistricted residents who have the wrong sticker for their new ward expires at midnight June 30. On July 1, failure to display the correct, valid permit will result in motorists being ticketed for residential parking violations.

Officials said new residential parking signs have been posted in areas that require residents to change their sticker. Streets that border wards will remain dual residential parking zones and have been identified as such by new signage.

Residents who need a new residential parking permit are required to remove their current sticker from their vehicle’s windshield and return it to a DMV office for replacement. In addition to bringing remnants of their sticker, residents are reminded to bring their vehicle registration and their D.C. driver’s license with them.

Residential parking permits are available at any of the DMV’s four offices:

The Municipal Center and Penn Branch offices are open from 8:15 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. The Georgetown and Brentwood offices are open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays.
