    Driving to work on Thursday morning, I was surprised to find multiple cars being pulled over on both sides of 14th street by a very rude female traffic officer. It clearly appeared that the MPD traffic officers were pulling as many people over to administer for dubious "violations" in order to fill their quota due to the impending government shutdown. I was fined for a "seat belt regulation" for no reason. I was simply told to pull over and was fined $50. When asked to hand over my registration and proof of insurance, I was told that the printout of the online registration was invalid and that I should be fined $500, despite having an up-to-date and valid registration and insurance policy printout. Currently, USAA emails the insurance policy card. However, I was told this would be a $500 fine. When I asked why I was being fined for a "seat belt regulation" when I in fact had my seat belt on, I was told "Just answer me this, do you want me to fine you $500 in addition?" I felt like I was being treated like an innocent person in a place like Sudan or the Congo, where people are stopped routinely by "officers" for "fines" just to line their pockets. Perhaps I am assuming too much, but when 5 other cars are stopped at the same time during rush hour on a busy street in the midst of a looming government shutdown, the actions of these officers are suspect. Furthermore, their blatantly rude behavior (one officer looking on just laughed at the situation) is appalling.
  • Vacant Lot Archived
    1421 Belmont Street Northwest Washington, DC 20009, USA - Meridian Hill
    This is a constant issue. Not only is the lot covered in trash and weeds, the weeds have destroyed the sidealk on belmont and the alleyway. This has been reported multiple times and although the occasional violation notice is issued fhis just adds to the trash. The sidewalk remains broken and the lot is never dealt with.

    It has been difficult to find a bicycle parking space in front of the DC USA entrance for years now. No lack of car parking though. It's not like this just sometimes, it's like this ALL the time. Someone is seriously out of touch with how to encourage more people to bike in this city.

    Parked in bike lane. This happens often outside this CVS. I never see enforcement at this location.
  • 724 Harvard St Nw Washington, DC 20001, USA - Columbia Heights
    Snow plow needs to remove iced up snow on even numbered street side. Snow emergency had been lifted but cars cannot park on right side of street.
  • 1477 Newton Street Northwest Washington, DC 20010, USA - Columbia Heights
    broken tail light, multiple scratches. Police officers know the owner. Police officers ignore the violations because they go to the owners restaurant on the corner of Meridian St. and 14th St. Police corruption at its most common.

    Major shortage of bike parking at the Giant on Park & 14 NW. As a result, the trees are frequently used which causes stress to our young green trees. The sidewalk is large. Giant no longer displays product outside. This space should become bike parking.

    Trash everywhere in triangle area. This is a daily problem throughout Columbia Heights that needs daily clean-up AND litter enforcement with litter police imposing fines on those caught littering.
  • Kenyon Street Washington, DC - Columbia Heights
    We need more police patrol on Irving / Kenyon between 13th and 14th Streets to keep up with the ongoing crime (i.e. muggings).
