too much negative

This sign post is nothing but confusion and negativity. It somewhat explains why I don't drive in Montréal. I'm not even sure what the bottom sign means. Is it no parking between noon and 1pm on tuesdays and fridays from April first to December first? That seems oddly specific.

Then someone added a bicycle logo with a red line through it. I guess that means no biking at this particular corner? Or does the above timeline apply to bicycling too?

This sort of sign is why the philosophy of logic is such an important class at universities the world over.

The parking restriction is specific to keep it free as much as possible. The time indicated is when the streets are cleaned.

I wrote an article about this for the Gazette which explains some of it.

The bicycle sticker isn't official. It doesn't restrict anything.

Thanks for the clarification, Fagstein.

Mostly I was being tongue and cheek.
