Arlington County Police will begin issuing tickets as it enforces its new drop-off and pick-up zones in Clarendon tonight (Thursday).
ACPD made the announcement via Twitter this morning. It follows several weeks of public outreach about the new rules, which are intended to stop double parking, blocking of crosswalks and bike lanes, and other bad driver behavior.
Beginning TONIGHT in Clarendon, ACPD will begin enforcing the designated passenger drop-off and pick-up zones. Motorists should be on the lookout for 'No Parking Except 5 Minute Passenger Pick Up and Drop Off Zones' signs.
