Difference Between ‘No Parking’ And ‘No Stopping’ Road Signs
No stopping means no stopping
Opposite of a stop sign
In other words… ‘KEEP IT MOVING’
No parking means do not park the car, turn it off, take the keys out and walk away
..but you could STOP your car to load/unload passengers (sometimes I stop there to talk on the phone, even though the official reason you’re allowed to stop is to load/unload passengers).

“park”, when prohibited, means the standing of a vehicle, whether occupied or not, except when standing temporarily for the purpose of and while actually engaged in loading or unloading;
