    Even if the PFZ has to be for only 10 days, my family from out of town had a huge laugh at the idea that we have a sign that more or less says that prostitution will be more acceptable on the 25th of January.

    Ditto to what Jacquelyn said–I live within 2 blocks of the PFZ and it would be nice if this area was monitored and regulated as strictly as this 10 day period the rest of the year.

    Believe me – you’re preaching to the choir. Even if it’s difficult to catch a prostitute ‘in the act’ I’m amazed the city is so accepting of the status quo. They should at a minimum being doing more to disrupt the hookers comfort level.

    I’ve worked in Rosslyn for 8 years and haven’t seen one obvious hooker there the whole time. Yet living in our area of DC you see the same crew of hookers nearly everyday.

    I thought buses could not be parked in residential areas–I guess condos don’t count?

    Buses idle right outside my window all day long, often until after 11 pm. Is this illegal or was that restriction put in place just for the inauguration? Thanks.

    Anon 13:31, No the “No Engine Idling” restriction isn’t just for the Inauguration. It’s a permanent DC Regulation. If you see it happening, call 911 and have them send an officer over to enforce the law. A ticket for the violation starts at $500. Here’s the link specifying the law:

    Thanks a bunch! For the past year or so, I thought this was just part of the city noise you have to put up with.

    Chinatown bus idling this morning by the Mass and 6th park on Mass Avenue. Not only idling but blocking an entire lane of traffic. Do they EVER ticket in DC?????
