Wheel Stops in Your Parking Lot
What are wheel stops and why are they used in the parking lots?
Wheel stops are usually used where it is necessary to limit the number of vehicles traveling into a parking area. These are generally used in areas where pedestrians can be in danger of a parking vehicle or stopping a car very close to a wall or a barrier. Wheel stops are also used to prevent cars from getting over a walkway, embankment, drop off or a ditch. Local ordinance often requires the use of wheel stops in parking vicinity. ADA also encourages the use of wheel stops to prevent vehicles from entering the accessible routes.
What is the purpose of wheel stops in your parking lot?
Sometimes drivers forget to apply the handbrakes when they park their cars which can lead to moving the car elsewhere and worse, hitting another vehicle. Since you cannot make sure everyone applies hand brakes, therefore, it is better to install wheel stops in designated areas. These wheel stops can control the hazardous damage to pedestrians as well and allows them to pass by. These should be installed into places where contact with end barriers like high curbs needs to be avoided.
Some local zoning also requires the installation of these to designate the area as non-accessible for the vehicles. Wheel stops also need to be maintained regularly in another case, they can cause more damage, and the chances of pedestrians getting injured can also increase.
