Parking Pursuits Taken to the Limit in D.C
Byline: Tom Knott, THE WASHINGTON TIMES
I am developing a special relationship with the hardworking, obsessive-compulsive, parking-ticket woman in Adams Morgan.
We play our cat-and-mouse game on a daily basis. I sometimes see her hiding behind a bush, with her trusty gizmo in hand, pretending to be enthralled with the lushness of the foliage, all the while awaiting a parking mistake on my part. I sometimes see her peeking out from the side of a building, craning her neck just so to see if I am up to no good. I admit to parking mistakes. I am not perfect. But it does become tiresome to have a $30 reminder of it planted on the windshield of my modest vehicle.
