I was one of those people who parked in a "forbidden" location at a recent
event.  The reason?  I had no idea I wasn't supposed to!  I've been to this
site several times, but had never stayed overnight.  When I pulled up to
unload my car, there were lots of other cars in the area, so I left mine.
Seemed simple and reasonable.  I was awakened in the middle of the night by
a kind soul who feared the cars were being towed. (Fortunately, it was a
false alarm.)  All I could think was, "How was I supposed to know I
couldn't park there?" No signs, and I don't remember ever being told. Maybe
there need to be more blatant reminders.  Or notices, for those of us who
didn't forget, but didn't know.
