Such signs shall be at least two feet high by three feet wide, with red lettering of a size not less than above indicated upon a white background. The words "police enforcement" and "under penalty of law" on such signs shall be construed, among other things, to mean a request by the owner or lessee that the police or special patrolmen shall enforce the provisions of this section against persons parking, standing, storing or leaving vehicles on such premises without the consent of the owner or lessee, and that the police are authorized to enter upon such premises to enforce the provisions of this local law. Such signs shall state the conditions of parking or the persons authorized by the owner or lessee to use said premises for parking or both, and persons not included within such authorization or violating the regulations and conditions set out on said signs shall be deemed to be using said premises unlawfully without the authority and consent of the owner or lessee.

Proof of ownership of a vehicle shall be presumptive evidence in action for enforcement of this law that the owner parked or caused his vehicle to be parked on such premises.
If such premises adjoin or abut upon a building or structure whose entrances or exits open upon such parking area, no vehicles shall be left parked, standing or placed in such a manner as to obstruct such entrances or exits, and a clear unobstructed passage shall be maintained and left open from such entrances or exits to the street or public right of way; such passageway shall be equal in width to the width of said entrances or exits in each instance, but in no case shall be less than five feet wide, and shall permit persons to enter and leave such building or structure with safety. A sign attached to such building or structure at the place of such entrances or exits shall inform users of such restrictions, and failure to obey the regulations herein contained shall be deemed a violation of this article.
On demand of the police, any owner or lessee requesting police enforcement of this article shall furnish to the police a statement in writing, signed by him or his agent, to the effect that a specified vehicle was unlawfully parked, stored or left upon his premises at a certain time or during a certain period without his consent or permission, and such owner or lessee shall be available to testify to such facts in court at the request of the police.
Failure of an owner or lessee to comply with the request of the police as above set out shall be sufficient cause for the Chief of Police or his subordinates to cease enforcing this article at the premises of such owner or lessee who fails to give the cooperation required herein.
Where the owner of premises desired to prohibit completely parking thereon, he may notify the public to that effect by a conspicuous sign or signs placed on said premises stating in substance:
