DO YOU HAVE ENOUGH HANDICAPPED PARKING SPACES IN YOUR PARKING LOT?
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 provides guidelines to prevent discrimination against people with mental or physical disabilities. A small section in this broad act sets the standard for handicapped parking spaces in public parking areas.
How many handicap parking spaces do you need? All parking lots must have at least one van-accessible parking space. If the lot holds between 26 to 50 cars, the lot must have two spaces - one car and one van. The formula adds an additional space at 76+, 101+, 151+, 201+ and 301+. At 501+ spaces, 2% of the spaces in the lot must be handicapped accessible.
Our easy to use chart below will take some of the guess-work out of creating a compliant parking lot.
No one from ADA will ever come to your workplace and cite you for a violation, however, you will be held liable for a safety issue if your parking lot is not compliant. The Sign Studio has same-day shipping on all handicapped signs and 1-2 day shipping on custom handicapped signs.
