Park there for more than 10 hours. But how can they tell how long you have been there without a meter?

Places around here mark your tires with chaulk and then come back after the time period and ticket you.

But that 10 hrs applies only between the hrs of 6 & 4, and only on weekdays. The rest of the time you can park as long as you like.

if you got there at 5am wouldnt you then get a ticket at 3:01pm since you exceeded 10 hours during the time that you are not to exceed 10 hours?

Hehe, its a pretty bad sign, would sure be easy to get off on any type of ticket

But wouldn't the "clock" on your 10 hours only start running from 6 a.m.?

only a bunch of electricians would debate the interpretation of the parking sign

I think it could be argued either way. Which makes the sign fun

Just goes to show you that even when you think it is spelled out fairly simply, there is a wide range of interpretation. I think that the FPN: TOW AWAY implies that any time other than the listed permissible times would result in a tow.

But then would that mean that no parking at all Sat. & Sun.??
This needs to go before the panel again at next session.

Actually, the arrow for the tow-away zone points the other direction. This is the dividing line.
Also, there's a guy that lives under this sign. We had to evict him from the warmth next to a utility transformer to do our project, so somebody got him a tent.

Downtown LA is quite a "different" type of place.
