   (b)   No person shall fail to comply with directions displayed on the parking meter or fail to set the timing mechanism in operation when so required.
   (c)   No person shall cause, allow or permit a vehicle to occupy a metered space or non-metered space beyond the maximum consecutive parking time limit lawfully prescribed, for the particular space occupied, by appropriate notice on the meter or on posted signs, irrespective of the number or amount of coin deposited in a meter.
