If you're visiting DC watch out for politicians driving after midnight

Grandma said nothing good happens after 11 PM. Looks like she was right.
D.C. Councilmember Marion S. Barry (D-Ward 8) pulled his car out of a parking space into the path of an oncoming vehicle shortly after midnight this morning, police said, in a stretch of Southeast Washington dominated by fast-food restaurants and nightclubs. Neither he nor the driver of the oncoming vehicle, a 1999 Jeep Cherokee, was injured in the 12:10 a.m. collision.

Barry, the former four-term mayor whose struggles with substance abuse and brushes with the law are well known, was given a $50 ticket for failing to yield the right of way, according to the accident report filed by D.C. police.

The reporting officer checked off a box on the report asking whether the at-fault driver had been drinking and appeared to be impaired. But police did not charge Barry with driving under the influence.
