Park it, Sugar

Just a little taste of what it's like to park in the D.C. Metro area.

The parking meter I just encountered has a 30-minute limit.

Upon making its acquaintance, said meter explained the terms to me:

  • 20 min for a Quarter
  • 8 min for a Dime
  • 4 min for a Nickel
  • But here's the kicker:

    For convenience, $1 gives 30 min

    My, that is convenient. Thank you so much.
