Commercial Parking Lot Signage

Have you ever gotten fined for a parking violation? If you have, then you’re probably among the numerous Americans that either forgot the time limit on their paid parking or just didn’t see a sign that places restrictions on a parking space.

When a sign is placed in a hard-to-spot area, drivers will most likely be unaware of certain parking policies specific to the area they’re parking in. Sometimes, the print on parking lot signage starts to fade as it ages. You can find a wide selection of high quality signs that’ll last for years at Dornbos Sign and Safety.

Safety Signs

Commercial parking lot signage is not only necessary to secure drivers from getting in trouble with the law; it’s also necessary for maintaining the security of the environment. For instance, these Dornbos Sign and Safety commercial parking lot signs are designed to provide protection:

  • “Reserved For Security”
  • “Reserved For Police Cars”
  • “Emergency Room Parking Only”
  • “Doctor Parking Only”
  • “Do Not Block Driveway, Violators Will Be Towed”
  • “Ambulance Parking Only”
  • “Paramedic Parking Only”
  • “Emergency Vehicles Only”
  • “No Parking At Any Time”
  • “Firefighter Parking Only”
  • Fire Hydrant Sign

Hospital parking lots must have these kinds of signs to be ready for any type of emergency. Having an emergency sign in place will allow patients to get timely care, which can ultimately save lives.

Most commercial parking lots have spots reserved for emergency vehicles, such as parking spaces reserved for the use of fire protection. These signs are significant since the chances of putting a fire down before extreme damage is caused will be lower if a vehicle is parked in front of a fire hydrant, for instance.

In addition, the proper placement of parking lot signage is necessary for maintaining environmental sustainability. Signs that warn drivers of violating littering laws are highly effective for keeping the environment clean.

Signs of Reservation

A large number of commercial parking lot signage is meant for security purposes, but they’re also largely used for reserving parking spaces in diverse sectors. Whether it’s to cater to people with special needs, or to reward an employee with easy parking access, these types of signs save many from the hassle of looking for parking and commuting long distances to reach a destination.

You can also find these types of signs at Dornbos Sign and Safety:

  • Ø“Reserved For Parents With Small Children”
  • Ø“Parking For Visitors Only”
  • Ø“Employee Of The Month”
  • Ø“Permit Parking Only”
  • Ø“Manager Parking Only”
  • Ø“Customer Parking Only”
  • Ø“Company Vehicles Only”
  • Ø“VIP Parking Only”

When parking lot signs are placed in their appropriate locations, it saves companies from dealing with trouble with the law, as well. Someone may file a lawsuit against a company for discrimination or for causing a safety hazard if they don’t have vital signage in place.

According to the ADA National Network, in 2010, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) instated new rules regarding the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Minimum accessibility requirements for commercial facilities are outlined in Title III (Barrier Removal) of the 2010 ADA standards. “Designating accessible parking is often readily achievable, and is considered a top priority because it enables many people with disabilities to ‘get in the door,’ ” (ADA National Network).
