Finally, a rule I can probably follow:

What would you have to do to get a citation?

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


Theres always enough room in the junction box.You just need a bigger hammer

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 [Linked Image]

I think it could be argued either way. Which makes the sign fun [Linked Image]

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.
