Sidewalk Signs Targeted by District

sidewalk-signWe’ve all seen them. I’m sure we’ve all used them, but did you know that the sandwich signs that restaurants put out on the sidewalks to let you know their specials and menus are illegal in the District?

People have been ignoring the law for years, and the City so far has chosen not to enforce the law … that is until now.

It seems March 23rd is a red letter day, because not only is it the first day of alternate  side parking restrictions, its also the day that DDOT will start ensuring compliance with the placement of signs in public spaces. Beginning on the 23rd, there will be a 7 day warning period. Then, starting on April 1, infractions will cost you $150.
