The parking corrals are another component of DDOT’s effort to improve safety and visibility for all roadway users at intersections District-wide. In 2019, DDOT updated the District's Residential Permit Parking (RPP) regulations to include language that clearly defines minimum parking distances at intersections.
The updated regulation eliminated the exception for vehicles with in-zone RPP stickers to park overnight closer to the intersection than best safety practices and signage would allow. Drivers parking on an RPP-zoned street should look for the last RPP sign on the block and ensure that their vehicle does not extend beyond that signpost.
On District streets where parking is allowed, drivers should generally park no closer than 40 feet from the intersection, unless there is signage indicating otherwise. Where a street has parking signage, all drivers must obey the signs and avoid parking in “no parking” or “no standing” zones approaching intersections.
