§ 455.05  Parking Regulations
   (a)   Except as otherwise provided in this chapter, when any vehicle is parked in any parking space adjacent to which a parking meter is located, the person so parking such vehicle shall, upon entering such parking space, immediately deposit in the parking meter such proper coin or coins of the United States or such proper marking token or tokens or shall immediately insert in such parking meter such proper parking key or parking card as is required for such parking meter and as is designated by proper directions on the meter. When required by the directions on the meter, the person so parking the vehicle, after the deposit of the proper coin or coins, or parking token or tokens, or insertion of the proper parking key or parking card, shall also set in operation the timing mechanism on such meter in accordance with directions appearing thereon. Failure, to deposit such proper coin or coins, or parking token or tokens, or failure to insert the proper parking key or parking card, and to set the timing mechanism in operation when so required, shall constitute a violation of this section. Upon the deposit of such coins, parking tokens, or upon the insertion of the proper parking key or parking card, and the setting of the timing mechanism in operation when so required, the parking space may be lawfully occupied by such vehicle during the period of time which has been prescribed on the parking meter for the denomination of the coin or coins, or parking token or tokens deposited, or during the period of time which has been prescribed on the parking meter for the parking key or parking card inserted, provided that any person parking a vehicle in a parking space adjacent to which there is a parking meter which indicates that unused time has been left in the meter by the previous occupant of the parking space, shall not be required to deposit a coin or coins, or parking token or tokens so long as his or her occupancy of the parking space does not exceed the indicated unused parking time. If any vehicle remains parked in any parking space beyond the parking time limit set for such parking space, and if the parking meter indicates such illegal parking, then, and in that event, such vehicle shall be considered as parking overtime and beyond the period of legal parking time, and such parking shall be deemed a violation of this section.
   (b)   Except as otherwise provided in this chapter, when any vehicle is parked in a parking space in a Municipal parking facility in which automatically operated gates have been erected at the exits or entrances of such parking facility, the person so parking such vehicle shall, upon removing such vehicle from the Municipal parking facility, upon entering such parking facility, deposit or cause to be deposited a coin or coins of the United States or such parking token or tokens, or cause to be inserted the proper parking key or parking card as is required for such automatically operated gate and as is designated by proper directions on the gate or posted adjacent thereto. Failure to deposit such coins, or parking tokens, or to insert the proper parking key or parking card shall constitute a violation of this section. Upon the deposit of such coin or coins, or parking token or tokens or upon the insertion of the proper parking key or parking card in the automatically operated gate, the vehicle being removed from the parking facility shall be deemed to have been lawfully parked for that continuous period of parking time immediately preceding the removal of the vehicle from the Municipal parking facility.
