There's plenty of parking time in there!

(My guess is it's the pickup/dropoff zone by a school, and all those temp orders are up for end-of-year craziness.)

I can do you one better--I took this picture just outside New Haven:


Not only can you never park--they're mocking you about it.

As a former cop the sign makes perfect sense to me. Note the arrow. No parking anytine to the left of the sign in the direction of the arrow point. Permitted parking is in the other direction.

It's the "All Other Times" that leads one to belive that the two signs are connected.

(In all fairness, if memory serves, the spaces ahead of that sign should be no parking anytime without help from a sign--active driveways and curbside within such-and-such feet of an intersection. Around here, they sometimes add signs where parking violations are likely to be enforced by a tow rather than a ticket... costs them thousands in revenue a year, but saves a lot of hassle over disputed tickets, I'd wager.)
