lol Childrens hospital is in a nice part of town and "park at your own risk" is BS. Between us, PG, MoCo, SPOs, and Howard, that strip is probably safer than the White House.

My wife trains MoCos EMTs at WHC and I have ZERO concern of her there.

We do work at NIH and the police in there give us parking tickets working off our welding trucks , we just charge the contractor for them 75.00 each time . We leave the ticket in place all day and pay it . And that is fixing their own equipment , they still think they are making out and making money on that scam .

Me and my brother went to HS in DC. We always park on the same street where there was no sign posted and it was free. One day, we got a ticket and saw a new sign posted next to our car, the cement was still fresh lol.

All our DC projects have a parking line item in our overhead. Parking tickets in DC are inevitable so we have to charge for it.

Correct answer. Don't expect more. Its all about grifting revenue

I think they meant more of a risk that some days you could park on both sides of the street and some days you couldn't, or there was a couple days where the cars couldn't be parked later than a certain time or something?

I'm pretty sure they meant park at the risk of getting a ticket, not physical harm.

Either way, the $7bucks a day was a bargain to me. I had a 4 hour round tip commute, on a good day. The last thing I wanted to have to deal with at the end of the day was a parking ticket or a towed vehicle.

definitely not even to drive through. Driving through and about down there is a friggin nightmare. Their speed cameras are BS, also.
