Properly Installed Traffic Signs Must Meet Local, County and State Standards for Height, Frequency and Placement
Common traffic signs are a big part of creating a proper parking lot facility or parking garage facility. The right traffic signs are needed to meet Florida Law and requirements of different agencies involved in the regulations of traffic signs, roads and parking lot safety.
Perma Stripe has long been the Florida leader in the selection and placement of the proper traffic signs and proper place in parking facilities all over Florida. Decades of experience make signage second nature for Perma Stripe of Central Florida. What follows will give you some idea of what traffic signs may be needed in a parking lot, parking garage and access road project.
When selecting a professional road and parking lot striping firm, it is important to remember to make sure they are a fully compliant, experienced firm, and equipped to re-sign your facility according to the most up to date traffic sign laws. There are many small companies with a striping machine and good intent that can get you in hot water with the state, county and local officials for not adhering to the newest traffic sign regulations.
Let’s look at just a few of the traffic signs that may be required in some situations that may involve your parking facility:
Bring your vehicle to a complete halt
A bikeway crosses the road ahead
Winding road ahead. There are several curves ahead. Drive slowly and carefully.
ADVANCE WARNING SIGN advises you to slow down, look and listen for a train, and be prepared to stop if a train is approaching.
Cross Road. A road crosses the main highway ahead. Look to the left and right for other traffic.
Two-Way Traffic Ahead. The one-way street or roadway ahead ends. You will then be facing oncoming traffic.
One Way. You may travel only in the direction of the arrow.
45 mph is the highest speed you can safely travel in this area.
Yield, Slow down and give vehicles crossing your path the right-of-way. If the way is clear, you may move forward slowly without stopping.
Slippery When Wet
There is a low place in the road. Go slowly and be ready to stop if the dip is filled with water.
When hiring a parking facility maintenance company, make sure they are professional. Ask for references, verify they are experts and up to date on all Florida Local, County and State regulations involving not only required traffic signs, but the height and frequency of the traffic signs in question.
