Controversy Surrounds New D.C. Parking Permits

A -D.C. council member says new proposed parking permits for visitors to the city could create more headaches for drivers.




Right now, a non-resident can park in zoned areas for two hours. Visitor passes require a trip to the local police station, for a vehicle-specific permit that's only valid for a certain period of time.

The District Department of Transportation has proposed a new plan -- a renewable, one-year "visitor" permit given to every household.

"The problem is that she just told me I get two even with a rental car, which means I can't park in front of my house that I'm an owner of," one D.C. resident told News4.

Council member Mary Cheh worries the permits could be traded, bartered or even sold to non-D.C. residents and up making parking problems even worse.

"I don't think we should just start a new program without looking at the other aspects of it; whether you're going to have it everywhere, are there some areas you wouldn't have it?" Cheh said.

Cheh said another problem with the passes is that the District may initally give the permits free of charge.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
