Practically everyday last week, I received an email from my HR department about Georgetown’s Halloween Road and Parking closures. After the 15th email and passing by a plethora of MPD posters taped to every tape friendly object, I was an expert on traffic situation surrounding the Georgetown vicinity on Halloween.
So to my surprise, while walking home on Wisconsin Avenue at 7pm, I see the above poster taped over every MPD parking advisory notice. While most of M Street and Wisconsin Avenue were clear of parked vehicles, there were a few vehicles who had bought into the poster’s “Free Parking” scheme. **Side note: Cons often feed on a person’s greed, and these drivers probably thought they’d hit the parking space jackpot.** While I didn’t see a traffic cop giving out tickets, I did spy a motorcycle cop taking down false posters. However for some parked cars I’m sure it was too late.
Did anyone see who was putting these posters up? Did anyone get a ticket because of the posters?
