158-32 OPERATION OF METERS; OVERTIME PARKING
In order that the police officers may properly compute the time during which a vehicle is parked, the owner or operator of such vehicle shall, upon entering a parking meter space, designated as provided in Section 158-31, during the time of limited parking, immediately deposit a coin or combination of coins of the United States in the parking meter situated at the side of each parking meter space, and operate such parking meter according to instructions thereon. Failure to do so shall constitute a violation of this section. Upon the deposit of such coin, and placing the parking meter space may be lawfully occupied by such vehicle during the period of parking time, which has been prescribed for the particular amount deposited. The parking meters, when installed and properly operated, shall be so adjusted that the requisite coin or combination of coins may be deposited. If such vehicle shall remain parked in any such parking meter space for such length of time that the parking meter shall indicate by a proper signal that the lawful parking period has expired, such vehicle shall be considered as parking overtime, and the parking of a vehicle shall be unlawful; provided, however, that no vehicle shall remain in such parking meter space for a period longer than one (1) hour during the time of limited parking.
