BARS::Speed Limit and Parking Signs in Mesa, Arizona

These speed limit and parking signs were found on Center Street in Mesa, Arizona.

The signs say...

     +-------+
     | Speed |
     | Limit |
     |   30  |
     +-------+
   +------------+
   |   2 Hour   |
   |  Parking   |
   | 8am to 5pm |
   +------------+

   the numbers are:  30  2  8  5

   the math is:  (30 - 8) / (5 + 2) = Pi

   observe...
      30 - 8 = 22
      5 + 2 = 7
      22 / 7 approximates Pi truncated to two decimal digits (3.14)

   non-Pi math:  30 / 5 + 2 = 8
