After reading all of the confusing parking signs on this pole, you might wonder why the city didn’t just post one simple “No Parking” sign.
Confusing Parking Signs
Someone proposed these. People discussed these. People voted on these. Someone was given these signs. Someone put them up. Someone stood back, looked at these confusing parking signs, and said “good”. Someone walks by and checks people are obeying this. People write tickets based on not following this. All of them thought this is acceptable.
So when can you park here? If you want to figure it out, then you might need to make an elaborate spreadsheet or a chart to help visualize it. Good luck!

It's true the signpost looks like overkill, but only the third sign down is truly redundant, the rest each say something different. The top sign tells you that there is street cleaning on Tuesday from 12-3, which probably should say "no stopping" as they'll give you only about 10 seconds before they ticket any vehicles as the street cleaner comes by (including buses). The second sign tells sightseeing bus drivers that they can stop there from 10AM-2PM (except from 12-2PM tuesday), but not from 7-10AM or 2-5PM school days, when it is is reserved for school busses. The bottom sign is temporary. I suppose one sign could say everything that's not on the temporary sunday sign, but that's still alot of info:
"NO STOPPING: Street Cleaning 12PM-3PM Tuesday… Sightseeing bus zone 10AM-2PM… (20 min limit) "School Bus Zone 7AM-10AM, 2PM-5PM school days"
