Los Angeles County and Surrounding Areas - Handicap and Traffic Signs

Rules and Regulations for Handicap Parking Signs and Spaces that you need to know.

Don't take chances with handicap signs at your business, we make handicap signs from restrooms to parking spaces. Our signs meet the high standards required by the AMA and we know where and how high to put them!

Accessible handicap parking spaces must be positioned at the closest accessible entrance to the facility. The space has to be big enough for a vehicle, at least 96 inches wide, with additional space on either left or right that acts as an access isle and should be wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair. Two accessible spaces can share an access isle.

A sign with the international symbol of accessibility must be located in front of the parking space, mounted high enough to be visible at all times. Van accessible spaces are to have additional signage stating "Van-Accessible" mounted below the international symbol of accessibility. The AMA states that the letters and numbers on signs are to have a width-to-height ratio between 3:5 and a stroke-width-to-height ratio between 1:5 and 1:10. Minimum character height is 3 inches. Confused? Don't worry, we at The Sign Studio understand all of it and will supply you with signs which meet all the standards for handicap parking.

We do all handicap signs including restrooms.
