$2,000 in Parking Tickets Dismissed

NBCWashington.com

Craig Kraft had been parking his work vehicles on the street because his neighbors don't like how they look in the driveway.

A Washington, D.C., man who received two $1,000 parking tickets from the city won't have to pay those tickets, according to a spokesperson for the D.C. Department of Public Works.

Craig Kraft received the tickets Sunday in the Shaw neighborhood in Northwest. Kraft parks a van and an SUV across the street from his home. The tickets cited "illegal parking of a commercial vehicle in a residential area" as the reason for the tickets.

After looking into the matter, DPW spokesperson Linda Grant said the tickets were dismissed.  According to Grant, the person who issued the tickets was using "old regulations."

Kraft can continue to park his trucks in the spots where he received the citations.
