The street sign says...

   +----------------+
   | 2 Hour Parking |
   |   8am to 8pm   |
   | except Sunday  |
   +----------------+
   the numbers are:  2  8  8

   the math is:  sqrt(8 / 2) = cuberoot(8)
   
   more math:  sqrt(sqrt(8 + 8)) = 2

   more math:  sqrt(cuberoot(8 * 8)) = 2

   more math:  sqrt(sqrt(sqrt(2^8))) = cuberoot(8)

   rsCardinalityEval:  2 + 8 / 8 = 3
   rsCardinalityEval:  avg(2, 8 / cuberoot(8)) = 3
   * There are three numbers in this sign.

   off-by-one rsStateEval:  (2 + cuberoot(8))! + 8 = 31+1
   * California was the 31st state admitted to the Union.

   off-by-one rs42Eval:  summation(2, 8) + 8 = 42+1
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"
   * summation(2, 8) = 2+3+4+5+6+7+8 = 35

   BARSfunc math:  2 + spf(8) = 8
   * spf(n) = the sum of the prime factors of n
     domain: n must be a composite number
   * 8 is composite; spf(8) = 2+2+2 = 6
