D.C.'s Department of Transportation has lifted evening time limits at parking meters in busy commercial areas including Adams Morgan and the National Mall.

John Lisle with DDOT says motorists still have to pay for parking at meters between 6:30 and 10:30 in the evening.

But now, as long as the meter is fed, there are no time restrictions.

He says the biggest complaint they heard was not so much about having to pay but having to interrupt their evening plans.

"People park in one spot maybe to go to dinner and a movie or both and they don't want to have to worry about moving their car."

But Lisle says if you had a ticket from before the new rules went into effect, you still have to pay it.
