Renew your tags!

One of the biggest advantages of Penn Quarter is that you can walk almost anywhere.  Any errand can be completed on foot.

Yet many of us still own cars to leave the city on the weekends or to visit others on the outskirts of town.  For those people: be sure you renew your registration! reports that Metropolitan Police are making a practice of throwing people in jail for expired tags.  The police, apparently, are frustrated with the number of expired tags out there.

And this isn't your usual "oh we know you did something, but this is all we have you on" type of thing.  One mother was arrested and detained because of an expired tag and nothing else.

According to D.C. Code, it is illegal to drive a vehicle without proper registration, punishable by a fine of up to $1,000 and/or imprisonment of up to 30 days. 

"Of all places, D.C. could be using its time more prudently," one local resident who has been arrested for an expired tag told FoxNews.
Well, at least we live close to the courthouse and central cell block.
