WASHINGTON – Following car on the basis of the attacks in New York and Charlottesville, Virginia, a new parking policy could force thousands to move their cars during big events in the capital of the country.

The Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement to WTOP-FM-all of them are the case, the new parking restrictions, including the removal of all vehicles along special event routes, especially during competitions and parades.

On Thursday, D. C. Council hearing, Councilmember Charles Allen raised criticism and questions about the effectiveness of focusing on cars and the prediction of the killing of events that have been around for years. He described the process by which some residents get one day of parking permits as “complicated.”
