No overnight parking violators will be prosecuted

The headline above is the exact wording on a sign in a parking lot for Stewarts in Frankfort, NY.

At the convenience store in Frankfort, the sign doesn’t seem to be causing any trouble, officials said. Stewarts spokeswoman Maria D’Amelia said the way the sign is designed is an attempt to keep things simple. “It’s pretty standard phrasing for this type of sign,” she said. “We would expect that it’s understood what it means.”

The way its written it can only mean one thing. If you park overnight, you won’t be prosecuted.  Period.  How can it mean anything else.

Although, assuming the last sentence in the quote above is accurate, maybe it can.
