I immediately took photos, and I'll be returning to personally record the distance between the parking signs.
1. This was not my car. I want to fight the ticket, because I believe I was parked legally. Does it matter what the owner thinks?
2. Does it matter what the municipality intended at my end of the block, if the existing signage didn't actually express that (and hasn't apparently since 2009)?
3. I could find nothing in Ontario regulations about what the meaning of a single arrow on a basic no parking sign is. It's obvious, but is there a written definition anywhere?
4. If I am parked directly at one parking sign, how far away can another parking sign be that I must obey?
Thanks for your interest.
This monthly switching seems to be common in that area, which is surprising to me.
I found 7 cases where the month-specific sign was on the same post as the the basic sign (or less than 10 m apart)
I found 2 cases where they were about 25 m apart.
I found 2 cases where they were 50 and 75 m apart.
I found 2 cases where there was only the monthly sign.
I found 4 cases that did not apply (too blurry, no parking at all, etc.)
I didn't see any other case where the sign in force could be over 100 m away.
