An effort to fight fraud and provide parking to those who are disabled has failed once again.
Those red top meters you see around D.C. are still not being used. The D.C. Council can't decide on the best way to implement the program.
District Department of Transportation officials tell FOX 5 that there are 450 meters already in place on area streets and 1,500 more in storage. The total cost of those meters is $815,000.
On Tuesday night, council members defeated the bill that would have set aside 10 percent of all street parking for red top disabled meters. Under this plan, all would have required to pay to park.
