I was embarrassed by the example Gale Holland used to show how confusing parking signs can be. Have we lost our ability to read and make simple deductions?
Let me explain those signs in Hollywood.
"Tow-Away No Parking Anytime" (arrow pointing left) means that you cannot park to the left of the sign at any time. "Tow-Away No Parking 6 p.m. to 3 a.m." (arrow pointing right) means that you cannot park to the right of the sign during the hours posted. "2-hour parking Mon.-Sat. 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Sun. 11 a.m. to 6 p.m." (arrow pointing right) means that you can park up to two hours to the right of the sign during those days and times posted.
And although it is not specifically posted, you can figure out that there are no parking restrictions at all to the right of the sign Monday through Saturday from 3 a.m. until 8 a.m., and on Sunday between 3 a.m. and 11 a.m.
