When one observes the image in the link above, it is easy to become overwhelmed with information. What is the problem with this visual? For one, there is a problem with the data. The data are too dense, making it very difficult to understand. There's chaos, and lack of organization or any kind of order for that matter. There technically weren't any designer issues, seeing how each sign is legible, specific, and is in English. Lastly, there could certainly be a problem with the audience. From a perspective of someone reading this sign, let's think about what's going through their minds. For one, they are probably only looking at this sign if they are not familiar to the area, because they would have simply found some place else to park. Secondly, they might be in a time crunch, so they do not have the time or patience to analyze and break down the meanings of the signs.
