When you are planning a parking lot, whether you are planning one from scratch or are re-designing one, do you ever think about the wheel stops? Wheel stops are an integral part of any parking lot, just as getting the lines painted correctly is an integral part. Wheel stops not only help people to keep their vehicles where they go, they also help people to know where to park.
Knowing where to park and having the proper spacing in a parking lot is extremely important. If your clients do not park in the right place, it could mean that doors get damaged and cars get dented. Wheel stops help the patrons to understand where to park. Wheel stops are also an important piece of the puzzle because they keep cars from rolling where they shouldn’t go. You would never believe how many times people leave their vehicles in the drive or neutral positions when they get out of a car. It happens very frequently, and wheel stops can prevent the forgetful owner from damaging any cars, including their own! If you’re planning on working on your parking lot, make sure that the wheel stops are in the right place and are helpful to drivers.
