Failure to deposit such credit card or other acceptable form of payment and when appropriate to display a receipt in or on the vehicle per said instruction shall constitute a violation of this section. Upon the deposit of such credit card or other acceptable form of payment, or when appropriate the proper display of such receipt in or on the vehicle, the parking space or area may be lawfully occupied by such vehicle during the period of time which has been prescribed for the part of the street in which such parking space is located.

If such vehicle shall remain parked in any parking space beyond the parking time limit set for such parking, or if the meter shall indicate 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.
