    Because if the sign were facing the proper way, there would be no parking to the right of the sign, but parking permitted to the left

    Unless you're missing another sign, it's fine to park there at 5pm on a Wednesday.
    The sign tells you the restrictions - no other restrictions apply unless another sign says so, or there's a yellow line etc.

    If there were limits at other times it would have a multi-sign like this.



    (I googled "confusing parking sign" to get this one!)

    A thought, there isn't a separate "clearway" sign like this along that stretch of road as well?



    Ideally, they should also have the clearway times listed on a separate sign with the 1P sign, but I always double check on those sorts of roads. (After getting a ticket for parking in a clearway once!).

    I don't think it wanted me to paste 2 images in the one post. Clearway sign:

    I know, you'd get a ticket because it would take you 30 minutes of staring at it, collating flow charts etc to determine if it was OK to park there.

    Default What does this sign mean?

    At first glance it's confusing but I've had a good look and I think it actually makes sense. It's a loading zone each morning, then a no parking zone each day, then a parking zone each evening to the left and a loading zone each day to the right and a parking zone each evening to the right. Unlimited parking overnight.

    I would say, no, it is not OK to park there at all outside the times that are specified on the sign. You can only park there during those non-peak times and on the other side of the sign you can't park at any time.

    I have always read those signs as the restrictions being between the times on the sign. If nothing else is specified then you're free to park for however long you want!
    @Jontu, there's nothing for it. You're going to have to call the Council and get a definitive answer for us here at the Hub!
