Parking One Time?
Tod Wicks

Issue 10 (July 2007)

In most of the world a large white P on a blue background is the symbol for "parking." You can find parking lots, parking garages, and parking spaces on streets by looking for the big P.

Here's one that has added information. At first glance it appears that you can park in this spot only once. Wow! How would they enforce that kind of ordinance anyway? Keep track of the license plate number of the cars parked there over the years? What happens if you park there more than one time?

Uh-oh, you've just realized that you were in Denmark. You finally understand that "1 time" means "1 hour" in Danish. Pronounced tim-uh.
