The “Rosetta Stone” of parking sign language courses
Parking sign language is difficult to learn. More importantly, once you learn it, will you be able to apply your new-found knowledge in 3-5 seconds on the mean streets of NYC?
I’ve been barraged by parking sign questions recently. It’s one thing to read one, simple, solitary, white sign on a parking pole that limits parking to 2-hours between 7A-2P. It’s another thing to figure out whether you can park safely in a space regulated by a 4-headed monster on a gotcha pole.
My goal is to help you answer with confidence the age-old query, “can I park here?”
In the first of three lessons, you’ll learn:
- C-A-D-E (Larry’s system for reading a sign)
- YES Donald Trumps No
- Yellow paint
I wrote this blog post before the redesigned signs replaced all the old, totally unintelligible signs. The Evil Empire spent millions of dollars to make the parking rules displayed on the signs more understandable.
Did they succeed? You certainly can’t measure success by a reduction in the number of parking tickets or revenue. But, in my humble opinion, they are much easier to understand.
What do you think?
