VIOLATION: Wilson Blvd. and N. Edgewood St.

Today's violation is sponsored by Arlington County police spokesman John Lisle, who accused us in a Washington Post article of making "a lot of allegations that are not based on the facts."

How's this for a fact, Mr. Lisle? On the afternoon of Monday, August 28, 2006, an employee of Arlington County parked and left his county vehicle unattended next to a fire hydrant.

How do we know this? Because there's a picture of it. But what do we know? We're just a silly non-Arlington County employee.

Date: 8/28/2006
License Plate: 109-366L (VA)
Car Number: 6249

In other news, CSI: Arlington County has obtained the Arlington County Parking Enforcement Unit parking checklist:

1) Park next to fire hydrants. Since most people know they'll be ticketed and towed if they park there, the spots are almost always open.

2) Be sure to leave your lights on. If your battery dies, we'll just bill Arlington County taxpayers for a new one.

3) Leave the truck unattended for a while. The presence of the truck will let passersby know not to park illegally.

Arlington County Parking Enforcement Unit: Because Parking Legally Just Isn't Any Fun!


  • Although I love the idea, you must have a really boring life. Being new to the area I hate the parking issues here. They are very anal about all traffic issues. Try having a 78' truck and finding a parking spot. Then when you do find one it's in S Arlington and you get complaints everyday. I pay just as much taxes as most people in Arlington and I live work and play here too. I you drive down 4 mile access you will see trucks that never move, ever. Focus more on topics like that. As for the picture above. It's obvious that you have never worked in public service. The amber nights on top of any public vehicle are for the purpose of warning the public that they are indeed blocking the road or stopped or standing. The lights on most newer trucks are daytime running lights. I'm not here to argue or say what you are doing is wrong, like I said I enjoy the concept. Give them a break sometimes, they are just doing their job, like you hopefully do daily. Oh ya I almost forgot, the officer from DC parking in the HC spot should have his license suspended for a year and have to pay a $5000.00 fine. There isn't an emergency that condones parking in a handicapped spot. Hell park on the curb if your that LAZY.
