Night meter rules lifted in some areas

Just in time for the summer campaign season, the District has lifted new parking meter rules that required motorists to feed meters while trying to enjoying a night on the town.

Mayor Adrian M. Fenty (D), who proposed requiring the fees to generate revenue, has heard complaints on the campaign trail. He said in an earlier interview that he would revisit the issue.

On Friday, the D.C. Department of Transportation announced that many commercial areas would no longer require feeding the meters from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m.

However, "premium demand zones" will still be under the new rules. Watch out for tickets!

Here are the zones where the rules will remain in force:

Adams Morgan
Georgetown Historic District
Penn Quarter/Chinatown
U Street, NW Corridor
Downtown Central Business District
Maine and Water streets SW
The Mall
Wisconsin Avenue NW (from Van Ness Street to Western Avenue)
