For the smart (the white car), the same rules apply as if it was 
overtaking the parked cars, it may only pass once the other side is free.

The signs on the right say "no stopping", arrow to the left means "no 
stopping starts here", arrow to the right means "...and ends here". They 
are just there temporarily, there is some construction or something like 

Maybe it is difficult to see in the perspective the photo was taken, but 
actually none of the parking cars is parking there illegaly. At the 
sections where stopping is forbidden, there are no parking cars.
