Also things like Short term and Long term parking areas near airports,
ferrys, etc. Max stay is good for marking how long you can stay, but
it doesn't show that there is a minimum time (which some long term
parks have).

Also, parking areas for long vehicles only (trucks, buses, caravans
etc), which are quite common at some of the bigger service stops/rest
areas near here. I know at least one driver personally who keeps a
special map tagged up with those around the country.
