Yah! No more parking permit Nazis to worry about.

They've been replaced with something worse apparently:


We are near a secure military installation and no photography is allowed.
Security personel will be observing the market and they will demand your
"film" if they observe you taking pictures.

Stay away from the secure area east of the flea market. We understand
there will be some curiousity about the base, just observe it from the
flea market area. Don't head over there for a closer look. They are
justifiably paranoid.

Yeesh. Now we can feel paranoid as we rummage through electronic junk.
