How long can I park here for?

This sign really puzzles me:

Mondays to Fridays I can park for 2 hours between 8am and 6pm using a Parkscheibe, or if I am a local resident with Parkausweis Nr.5. But what happens after 6pm?

Can I park here as a non-resident then? Or is it residents only? Or unlimited time?

I asked some people local to the town where I saw the sign (and wanted to park), but no-one really seemed to be too sure. I have also heard that traffic warden have checked the cars after 6pm, so perhaps it really is just for residents? Anyone know for sure?

  1. Usualy you do what the first sign allows/disallows. Any exceptions to that has to be shown on signs bellow.

    So I’d say anybody is allowed to park between 6pm and 8 am.
