Parking Permit Regulation - City Hall is disconnected from reality

Unfortunately my parking permit expired at the site of a project that happens to be inside the K1 parking zone. A new set of rules is in place that has a lot of obstacles to getting any kind of parking permit, I was lucky to qualify for anything.  Apparently I am now in the lowest class of parker imaginable, a small step up from 'slum lord'.  

 Is this some sick joke from the parking authority?  Despite the derogatory label, I am going to hang this from my rearview mirror - with pride!
