    ""After the test starts," he read, "a score of T will result each time you press
    the lefthand button except as otherwise provided here below. Press the
    lefthand button whenever the red light appears provided the green light is not
    lighted as well except that no button should be pressed when the righthand
    gate is open unless all lights are out. If the right-hand gate is open and the
    lefthand gate is closed, no score will result from pressing any button, but the
    lefthand button must nevertheless be pressed under these circumstances if
    all other conditions permit a button to be pressed before any score may be
    made in succeeding phases of the test. To put out the green light, press the
    righthand button. If the lefthand gate is not closed, no button may be
    pressed. If the lefthand gate is closed while the red light is lighted, do not
    press the lefthand button if the green light is out unless the righthand gate is
    open. To start the test move the starting lever from neutral all the way to the
    right. The test runs for two minutes from the time you move the starting lever
    to the right. Study these instructions, then select your own time for
    commencing the test. You are not permitted to ask questions of the
    examiner, so be sure that you understand the instructions. Make as high a
    score as possible." - Robert Heinlein, Space Cadet

    I think at this point, you just replace it with a sign that says "No Parking Anytime"

  3. Reminds me of the Futurama episode when the gang took a trip to the "Past-O-Rama" history-themed amusement park:

    Tour Guide: I direct your attention to this ancient and mysterious tablet which has yet to be deciphered.

    Leela: Do you know what it means?

    Fry: Yeah, I asked a cop once. It means "Up yours, kid".

  4. I think I just got a ticket from looking at this picture.
