What Signage Should You Have In Your Parking Lot?
Choosing the proper signs for your parking lot is very important. You want to make sure there is a plan in place for every situation that may arise. We cannot specifically tell you which signs you need here on this website because every parking lot is different, but once we are onsite with you, we can help you to identify hazards and then recommend the proper signage you should display in your parking area. Our recommendations will be based on the hazards present, as well as keeping you compliant with federal, state, and local laws and regulations.
Here are some of the most common type signs that will help to keep your patrons safe, and also help to keep your parking lot well-organized, and safe.
Handicap Parking Signage
Staying compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), is not only a requirement, but a necessity. Therefore, you must reserve parking spaces for disabled visitors based on the requirements around the size of your parking lot. According to the Americans With Disabilities Act National Network, only one accessible parking space is required for parking lots with 25 or less total spaces.
Each handicap parking spot should have an accompanying reserved parking sign, and we will make sure you have the proper handicap parking signage in place.
Fire Lane Signs
Depending on the layout and configuration of your parking area, you may be required to keep certain areas adjacent to the building clear for the fire department and other safety vehicles. Fire lanes must be kept clear and free from vehicles at all times, and restricting parking here is a necessity.
Installing fire lane signs will alert customers, visitors, and deliveries that the specific fire lane area should be kept clear.
No Parking Sign
You may have areas in your parking area aside from handicap parking spots, and fire lanes where you would like to restrict parking. In these cases, a clear parking prohibited sign will alert your patrons that parking is not allowed in the specific area.
Places you may need to use the no parking signs could be near entrances, loading zones, dumpsters, and other areas of your property where a parked vehicle would get in the way of normal business operations.
Customer Parking Only Signs
Customers love it when you save a spot specifically for them. Typically people are use to seeing restrictions around where they cannot park, so adding signs designating where they can park is always a welcomed treat.
Customer parking only signs will help to keep your parking lot from being used by neighboring businesses as well as keeping specific spaces available for your customers at peak hours of business.
Speed Limit Signs
Speed limit signs are not only for use on streets. When you post the speed limit in your parking lot, you help keep your patrons safe. It can become very easy for drivers to lose track of their speed while searching for a place to park.
Posting speed limit signs, along with installing other speed control devices like speed bumps, help to remind drivers that they are no longer on the open road, and that slower speeds should be observed.
Pedestrian Crossing Signs
If you have a larger parking lot, or a parking lot with an active crossing area, it may be a great idea to add pedestrian crossing signs to remind drivers that other visitors may be walking back and forth to your building.
These type of crossing signs can also be used if you have parking areas separated by private roads.
Entrance and Exit Signage
Entrance and exit signs are another way to help control the flow of traffic in your parking lot. When you give drivers clear direction, you can avoid mini traffic jams or accidents caused by cars going the wrong way or preforming U-turns which can both make for a dangerous situation.
Stop signs, just like speed limit signs, are not only for use on the streets. Stop signs in your parking lot can prevent unsafe driving practices. Drivers typically are less likely to speed if they see an upcoming stop sign. Stop signs are also a great idea to use near loading zones, they can give delivery trucks an opportunity to enter and exit the loading doc area safely and cautiously.
Stop signs can also be posted at the exit of your parking lot. Having your visitors stop as they are exiting will help remind the drivers to check for traffic and pedestrians around them prior to pulling out into traffic.
