Handicap Parking - California

California Handicap Parking Signs Must Adhere to State Regulations

You may or may not be aware that the regulations for CA Handicap Parking Signs are unique in California in comparison to the other states in this country. The majority of the American property owners understand how important it is to comply with the regulations set forth in the Americans with Disability Act that was enacted in 1990. A shorter name for this act is the ADA. There is a good reason for the importance of these regulations since they were enacted to ensure that people who suffer with disabilities can safely identify the entrances and exits to various properties that are open to the public that range from shopping mall lots to offices and other commercial structures. Sadly, there are still some property owners who fail to comply with the ADA rules, and nowhere is this more evident than here in the state of California. As a result of this failure, citizens may file a lawsuit in response to any public establishment or venue that overlooks the necessity of displaying the correct ADA signage or compliant CA Disabled Parking Sign models.

In 2008, California Changed Its Specifications for the R99C and R100B Signs

The state of California decided to change its regulation for the R100B signage for the handicap tow-away areas and the R99 signage to notate the handicapped parking spaces back in 2008. As specified in these rules, public venues and establishments that are located in this state are required by law to post the proper versions of these signboards throughout their parking lots. Even with the alterations seeming minor, there are major penalties for those property and business owner who fail to comply. Violators of these new rules and specifications may be fined as much as $4000 for failure to bring their property into compliance. Installing CA Handicap Signs and other MUTCD Compliant Signage helps you save money in the end.

Selecting the Right Disabled Parking Sign Models to Suit Your Specific Situation

At times, it can be difficult and even confusing to select the right handicap displays for your property. One example of a Disabled Parking Sign that you need to post in California is the R99C. This sign includes a pictogram of a wheelchair with a person in it and the message ‘Parking Only’ to signify handicapped parking only along with the stern message of ‘Minimum Fine $250’ to ward off violators. The pictogram in this sign is known as the International Symbol of Accessibility or for short, the ISA. To park in these spots lawfully, vehicle drivers need to display a handicapped license or placard that has been issued by the local authorities. Below are the exact regulation codes to refer to if you are trying to learn all of the California specifications in regards to handicap parking spaces and displays:

On top of all of this, certain ADA rules might require you to post the R7-8B signs that also state ‘VAN ACCESSIBLE’ on them on your property. Signboards of this nature denote the spaces that are reserved for those with vans with wheelchair lifts furthering safe accessibility for the disabled. The R100B Tow Away signage is another example of what you may be required to post in your public lots here in the state of California. These postings prohibit drivers from illegally parking in disabled spaces and inform them that violators will be towed. Also, these signs contain contact information on how to reclaim their towed vehicles. Remember that posting these Tow Away messages at the entrances of your parking lot can help you avoid expensive lawsuits.
