Disabled person parking signs, markers, and designated spaces are very important to business owners and those who rely on them. In 2008, the ADA clarified the exact designations and dimensions each parking lot must provide for those who need closer access to the store opening. Simple maintenance of the signs and markers can help visitors find these valuable spots and prevent others from parking in designated areas by mistake.
Make it a task each quarter to review the visibility of disabled person parking in your lot. Examine the paint for fading and chipping and keep trees and bushes from obstructing a driver’s view of your signs. Failure to maintain your parking lot could cost a bundle in fines and position you for a lawsuit.
“Just this week, we received a work order to remove stickers which were placed on a disabled person sign and pole,” says marketing manager Kate Frichette, “It’s worth the few minutes to walk your building area to make sure all is well with your signage.”
