Am I the only one to think about it this way?

I have always wondered why put up signs that say “Maximum fine….”. If you are trying to deter somebody from doing something, putting up a sign that says “Minimum fine….” makes more sense, right? It is like – Well, buddy, this is the minimum you will be hit with. Who knows what the actual amount will be? So, take your own risks…

With a “Maximum fine…”, it almost sounds like Well, this is the maximum you will be hit with. In reality it will be lower than that, but we assure you no more than that. So, see if you can afford the max value and then feel free to do what you want…

Does not seem to serve the purpose as effectively. What do you think? That said, I assure you I did not park at this spot 🙂
