California Handicap Parking Regulations
The Regulations for California Handicap Parking Are Different to That of Other States
The majority of property owners in the United States understand the importance of the regulations stated in the Americans With Disability Act of 1990, also known as the ADA. After all, these rules are about providing safe, identifiable and fair entrance and exit into and out of buildings, rooms or areas within said structures and even the parking lots for those who suffer from various types of disabilities. At present, not all property owners take steps to comply with these regulations, and this fact is quite evident here in California. Citizens in this state have the right to file a lawsuit against the public establishments when they do not offer the correct ADA signs or California Handicap Parking signs.
California Altered the State's Specifications for the R100B and R99C Signs in 2008
In 2008, California updated the state's regulations for its R99 series of signs that identify handicapped parking spaces along with its R100B signs, which point out the handicap tow-away zones. This state requires that public establishments post both of these signs in their parking lots. While the alterations to these regulations may seem minor to you, a violation of these rules can result in a fine of $4000.00. A fine of this magnitude will capture your attention to the importance of complying with the current California ADA rules with your handicap parking signs.
Choosing the Correct California Handicap Parking Signs for Your Needs
At times, it can be confusing to choose the correct CA handicap parking signs for your specific property to bring it into compliance with California ADA regulations. The California disabled parking sign R99C is one example of the signs that you need to display, and it contains a pictogram of a person in a wheelchair with the statement 'PARKING ONLY' on it along with the warning of a 'MINIMUM FINE $250' on it. Actually, the pictogram is called the International Symbol of Accessibility or the ISA. Vehicle drivers will require an official, handicapped placard or license to park in these allotted spaces. Refer to the CVC2251.9, CVC2251.8 and CVC2251.7 California regulations to learn additional facts about the state's laws on handicap parking signs and spaces. Each statute explains the regulations in detail to enable you to understand clearly the California requirement for disabled parking spaces that were present in 2008 or renovated since that time.
Along with the R99C sign, the regulations may require you to display the R7-8B sign, which state 'VAN ACCESSIBLE' on them on all pertinent disabled parking spaces to notate the ones that are designed for vans with lifts for wheelchairs. Another sign mandated for display in parking lots in this state is the R100B sign that signifies that when ineligible drivers use the handicap parking spaces the company tows their cars. Information also is on the sign to explain about how and where these drivers may reclaim their vehicles. Safeguard your establishment from expensive lawsuits through ensuring that your handicap parking signage complies with all the California ADA regulations.
