  • For example, if you park your car at 2:18 p.m., set the start time in the disc to read 2:30 p.m. 
  • If you park at 3:11, for example, the parking disc should read 3:30. 
  • Do not change the start time you have originally set. 
  • Place the parking disc in a visible spot behind the windscreen so that it can be read from outside the car. Only use one disc at a time.
