Private parking garage in Washington DC issues tickets; when unpaid they go on credit report as debts
A parking management company in the Washington DC area, Colonial Parking, is reported to be giving out parking tickets on the street in some areas (the Rhode Island ave. or Bloomingdale neighborhood) of Washington DC, on public streets that it somehow controls. Failure to pay can lead to a debt that gets put on the person’s credit report and could wind up in collections. The company has a way to get personal information from the DMV.
