As the District of Columbia prepares for streetcar service later this year along H Street and Benning Road, drivers are being warned to park carefully.
Ticketing begins Monday along H Street from Union Station to Benning Road. The best advice if you are driving in the area: Don't block the streetcar tracks.
When parking, vehicles must be within the white lines to give streetcars traveling though the area enough clearance to pass by safely.
Violators will receive $100 tickets for parking illegally on streetcar tracks.
The enforcement clears the way for testing the rest of the summer, with service to begin by the end of the year.
