I’m just not sure about this one. To me it says “No parking between 7:30 to 16:30″. Should it not be and? Or maybe they mean from rather than between? Yes, we understand the message, but some part of the message is lost when it becomes an effort to read.
I guess the sign writer here wanted to cover all bases. They managed to fit every possible form of possession and contraction into one word. If it stresses you out, have a glass of wine’s to help relax.
