WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — March 1st ends the warning period for D.C drivers parking in red-top meters designated for disabled drivers without a valid disability identification.

At the beginning of the year, the District Department of Transportation installed over 400 red-top meters in the city’s business district that allow disabled drivers to park in a spot for twice that normal allotted time.

Until today, violators received warners, but going forward they’ll get tickets.

The red-top meters are not free, and in fact disabled motorist must pay for the extra time, but they will not be held to the shorter times that the regular meters are keep drivers at.
