DPW Announces Next Phase of Bike Lane Enforcement

194

The DC Department of Public Works has announced that the agency will issue $150 tickets to any motorist improperly standing, stopping or parking in a bike lane. DPW has increased its bike lane enforcement program by mobilizing 26 new Parking Enforcement Officers and giving the entire PEO team—now nearly 300 strong—the ability to photograph vehicles blocking bike lanes. Violators will receive a $150 printed ticket at the scene, or a photo ticket in the mail along with an image showing the bike lane violation. Tickets can be appealed through the normal adjudication process with the Department of Motor Vehicles.
