Parking again .. Blue / Time Disc etc

Just bought a second car and since I only have one underground parking sport, I need to use the local blue parking..

In the village there are 3 public car parks, the lines marking the bays are blue and there is a sign with the double triangle disc symbol.. One car park sign has no info on what times are allowed, just the symbol.. Another has the symbol and says 3 hours are allowed, the last has the symbol and says 12 hours are allowed.

So I asked the commune, how long is allowed in the one with no times stated? Can I buy a macaron? What do they advise etc. They said only 1.5 hours so I should just use the one with 12 allowed.

So question is - I guess we need to go each and make sure the disc is set to 7am? Then when/if the car is used day time, set to actual time then again at night?? (I'm assuming here that nights don't count)

Does that make sense? Just trying to do it properly rather than pull a fast one.

Simply turning your disc is forbidden: you're actually supposed to get in your car and park it at another place.

And yes, some police assistants have nothing better to do than checking these things

Just to be a little clearer.. Wife will use this as a daily runabout.. it will move at least once per day. But for example if she comes back at 15h and sets the disc accordingly, it will be expired by 7am when the restrictions start again, assuming no night time restriction .. Or would it? Would it be valid until next afternoon if night does't count.. Arrrghh

So I was thinking to just set it 7am on my way to the bus stop in the morning.
