Food trucks, including Kristi Whitfield's Curbside Cupcakes, gather near the L'Enfant Metro Station around lunch time.

After years of parking where they choose, food truck operators in the District of Columbia are preparing to have their spaces assigned by lottery. 

District officials say the lottery will bring ``predictability and certainty'' to the city's food truck scene. 

The lottery system starts Monday. Participating trucks have been assigned spaces for their exclusive use every weekday. They'll get to park in the spaces for four hours. 

The spaces assigned by lottery are located in spots where trucks tend to congregate to serve the lunch crowd, including Franklin Park, Farragut Square, L'Enfant Plaza and Metro Center.
