I live in Adams Morgan and I love it but what I don't love is the parking. I barely drive my car but when I do, depending on the time and day of the week I am frustrated by the parking situation. I have a joke that is actually sad. I have a curfew on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, must be home by 8pm if I'm driving. Why? Because there is no parking available. The signs say zone 1 parking but others can park up to 2 hrs most of the day until late evening. But then I walk over to Columbia Heights and they have signs on one side of the street that only allow those with zone 1 parking permits to park there at all times. This is what's needed in Adams Morgan. I don't understand why this hasn't been implemented. Also, if you are wondering why I don't just pay for a monthly parking space, well first off there aren't any available to pay for and if there were it would cost around $200/month which is nuts.
I would like to see an only zone 1 parking at all times in adams morgan. I pay my taxes and parking permit so why do I have to go through this. Most the time I end up parking illegally which results in me having a $30 ticket in my own neighborhood.
