These parking signs are on N. Farmer Ave. in Tempe, Arizona.

The parking signs say...

   +------------+
   | NO Parking |
   | 1am to ?am |
   |  Tow Away  |
   +------------+
   +-----------------+

   the ? is probably 8, but it could be a 6

   if ? is 8, the numbers are:  1  8  1  8  6
   and the math is:  6 - sqrt(8 + 8) - 1 = 1

   observe...
      8 + 8 = 16
      sqrt(16) = 4
      6 - 4 - 1= (6 - 4) - 1 = 2 - 1 = 1

   if ? is 6, the numbers are:  1  6  1  8  6
   and the math is:  sqrt((sqrt(1 + 8) + sqrt(1 + 8)) * 6) = 6

   observe...
      1 + 8 = 9
      sqrt(9) = 3
      3 + 3 = 6
      6 * 6 = 36
      sqrt(36) = 6

   [exercise]  Find more math especially when ? is a 6.
