Arlington Gives Reprieve

January 8, 2014

For yesterday only, drivers parking in Arlington got a reprieve. Because the frigid temperatures were a danger to enforcement workers and because the weather caused an increase in meter malfunctions, meters were not enforced. The Department of Environmental Services maintains the county’s meters and reports this week’s colder weather and last week’s freezing precipitation led to a higher than usual number of malfunctions on the multi-space meters that dispense tickets. An average day typically requires around 15 repairs throughout the county. However, there were 29 repairs last Thursday, 76 on Friday and 61 Monday. (AN)
