Last week one of our slugs mentioned that Federal Protective Service showed up at the L’Enfant Plaza slug pickup location and asked drivers to move the vehicles and warned them they should not be picking up slugs anymore. So we took the issue to the DDoT today and found that there are several agencies that has authority to ticket vehicles. The DDoT representatives mentioned that they do not have jurisdictions over some curb spaces and they have to look into the DC Municipal Regulations and Register for the details. They also mentioned that there are about 30 organizations that can issue tickets for moving and parking violations. So we found that there are about 29 Federal and State organizations that can issue tickets.

Our research found the following:
