The Hill Gripe – Parking Courtesies

Capitol Hill is a very dense neighborhood.  A quick look to online sources shows the Lincoln Park area is 70% denser than the average for all of Washington DC.  We are also a walkable neighborhood, with shops, conveniences, and eateries within easy foot-reach.  But let’s face it: there are still necessities that are lacking on the Hill, and for these many of us resort to automobiles.  Whether needed for shopping or a daily commute that’s out of reach by foot or Metro, cars are a necessity for some.  These vehicles need to be parked somewhere and few homes on the Hill have private garages, so street parking is the norm for most of us. However, that zone 6 sticker seems to mean not just parking but also certain liberties about how one parks.

I admit my patience grows thin for folks who cannot seem to figure out how to use street parking in a courteous fashion.  I would not be surprised if we have more cars on the Hill than linear feet of parking available, so that patience gets even thinner when I see perfectly viable parking area go to waste.  I’m hoping it’s simply a lack of mindfulness about the issue and cars aren’t located with contempt for a fellow neighbor, but one never knows.

Let’s review some common Capitol Hill parking foibles and see if we all can’t move toward a more efficient colocation of vehicles. [Read more →]
