Can I Park Here?

This parking sign was spotted in Portland, Maine, and posted by redditor middleclassjobs. Can you make any sense of it at all? You have to wonder how many times traffic gets backed up because someone had to pull out their mobile device and look up a calendar, and spend time figuring out whether that parking space is empty because it’s illegal to park there, or because no one can figure it out. It appears that the bottom sign may contradict the middle sign, but what do I know?

When you negate the convenience of parking on the street with the headache of reading the signs, a few dollars to park in a garage may be a better option. And certainly the cost of a parking ticket would be more headache than all those options. Good luck fighting that ticket in court.

The cost of a parking ticket is far less than the cost of parking in a garage for the day, at least in Portland. I opt for the ticket when I am there. We New Yorkers laugh at your paltry $15 fines.
