The front and rear extremities of the vehicle shall be between adjacent meter posts or not more than three (3) feet from the post of an end meter. Whenever a vehicle is parked in a street parking meter zone where a meter has been installed, the person parking such vehicle shall deposit in such parking meter a coin of United States money of the denomination designated on the plates attached to such parking meter, if such meter displays the signal showing that legal parking is only permitted on such deposit.

(2) In Institutional Areas, seventy-five cents ($0.75) per hour or any portion thereof. For purposes of this section, an "Institutional Area" means the area adjacent to any hospital or educational institution in the City;
