I wonder whether a road street sign about parking applies before or after the sign. Location: Seattle, Washington, United States.

Example: in the picture below, I wonder whether the 3-minute passenger load only area applies before or after the sign:

Zoom on the 3-minute passenger load only side:

Passenger loading is behind the sign, pay to park is in front of the sign. In general, signs indicate the end of a parking restriction.

  • Thanks, just to confirm, you mean that the passenger loading area is between the passenger loading sign and the pay to park sign? Oct 10, 2021 at 1:49
  • No, it's between the loading sign and the parking lot entrance a few feet earlier. There is a sign in front of the restaurant door pointing east, which is where the pay-to-park is
