WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- Don't park at a red top meter in D.C. without a valid disability placard or license plate.
DDOT says this month parking enforcement officers will issue warning notices to people who are parked at a red top meter without displaying a valid disability placard or license plate.
DDOT started putting in the red top meters in January as part of a program with the goal of improving access to D.C. businesses and services for people with disabilities. Almost 400 red top meters installed in the Central Business District and the Federal corridors in southwest D.C.
The parking officials will also be giving out information in February about the requirements and enforcement associated with the program.
According to DDOT, "meter parking patrons with a valid disability plate or placard will be able to park for twice the time on these meters as long as they pay the established meter rate for that block face."
Starting March 1, if you don't have the proper placard or license plate or don't pay the meter rates and park at a red top meter, then you could be ticketed or have your car towed.
