After a week of voting, we’re proud to announce a winner in our first annual Alternative Vehicle Decal Contest.

The winner, with just over a 33 percent of the vote, is the “Parking Ticket Instructions” decal by “Planet Moron.” The “Brown Flip Flops” design is our runner-up, with 28 percent of the vote.

More than 750 people voted in the contest, which pitted five user-submitted parking decal designs against one another. The winner will now receive the high honor and distinction of being known as Arlington’s finest alternative parking decal designer.

(Reminder: This contest was not sanctioned by Arlington County or any other governmental body.)

    I missed the decals. Where can we see the four submissions?

    I never did vote. Too torn between this and the brown flip-flops. But I’m satisfied.

  • Peter

    Love it! When do they go on sale?

  • Meter Maid

    This makes my job easier. Thanks ARLnow

  • It looks like my wedding and the birth of my son just got bumped to second and third place in the “greatest moments of my life” list!

    Thanks to all who voted and my more-than-worthy competitors. Perhaps we can convince the county to begin a “vanity sticker” program. I could see sporting that dog park sticker.

      ” I could see sporting that dog park sticker.”

      You can…just adjust the photo of the dog park to be the same size as the graphic in the decal when it is issued.
      Stick it on your sticker then put them on your windshield.
      It is perfectly legal as long as you don’t cover up the serial number on the sticker.

      • I like that idea. It will be interesting to see if I get a ticket since legality typically plays a small role in that process.
