Upon the land and area designated for parking meter zones, the parking meters shall be installed adjacent to the individual parking places, or where one meter serves more than one parking place in close proximity thereto, and each parking meter shall be placed or set in such manner to show or display by a signal that the parking space adjacent to, or in close proximity to, such meter is or is not legally in use.

A. 
Depositing funds required. When a vehicle is parked in any space designated as a parking space in accordance with the provisions of this section, the operator of such vehicle shall, upon placing such vehicle in such parking space, immediately deposit funds which are lawful in the United States of America, as designated on the pay station, and in accordance with the time designated thereon. Failure to deposit funds shall constitute a breach of this section. Upon deposit of such funds and placing in the pay station for the parking space, the parking space may be lawfully occupied by such vehicle during the period of parking time which has been prescribed for the parking space location. If such vehicle shall remain parked in any such parking space beyond the parking time fixed for such parking space, the pay station will indicate such illegal parking, and such vehicle shall be construed as parked overtime and beyond the period of legal parking time. The parking of vehicles overtime or beyond the period of legal parking time in any such parking space shall be in violation of this section and the owner of the illegally parked vehicle shall be penalized as set forth in this chapter.
B.
