Illinois ADA Disabled and Handicapped Parking Signs

Stay In Compliance By Posting Illinois Handicap Parking Signs

When it comes to handicap access and accessible spaces, there are regulations in your state that govern which Handicap Parking Signs need to be clearly displayed to point the way for disabled drivers. The State of Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) follows the regulations set forth by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to list the proper signage necessary for any and all handicap stalls. Illinois DOT has combined the Federal MUTCD R7-8 reserved handicap sign and the Illinois R7-I101 $250 Fine Sign into a singular sign. These sign displays can be mounted onto a u-channel post, square post or be affixed onto the building as long as they are in front of the handicap parking stall. The R7-I101 sign is 12 inch wide by 24 inch tall with the wording “Reserved Parking” above the handicap symbol. This disabled parking sign also comes with an empty space to optionally add directional arrows to indicate the locations for designated parking. This sign design required by the IDOT is more convenient to install since it combines all the necessary elements together as one singular sign. With only two mounting holes, instead of the typical setup of two separate signs with four holes, less hardware is required to install.

What Is The Purpose Of ADA In Regards To Illinois Parking Signs

Any facility offering parking for employees or visitors must provide accessible parking for people with disabilities. Handicapped residents of Illinois, or any state for that matter, deserve the same high quality of life as non-disabled residents. The Americans with Disabilities Act helps to ensure that parking areas for schools, the workplace, recreation areas, shopping malls and all public facilities be open and accessible to anyone who wishes to visit them. Accessibility is the key focus for the ADA. By designing and marking special parking spots to be available to those with disabilities, the ADA is making the lives of the handicapped much easier to navigate through. The State of Illinois Department of Transportation’s goal is to ensure full accessibility for all Illinois residents.

What is Accessible Parking?

An accessible parking space consists of a vehicle parking stall marked by a reserved handicap sign and handicap symbol painted on the asphalt inside the vehicle space. You may also see a handicap parking space with a striped access aisle which is designated for accessible vehicles to be able to unload any disabled passengers who use a wheelchair. These “Van Accessible” parking spots allow for a lightweight ramp for side-entry to unload and load freely without obstruction, making for an easy entry and exit. Wheelchair accessible vehicles are manufactured to offer ease of access for wheelchair and scooter users. For this reason, it is absolutely important to keep that space clear of obstructions at all times. To comply with Illinois law and avoid fines, please be sure that there are no shopping carts, parked motorcycles or vehicles, trash, foliage, snow or any other obstacles occupying the access aisle that may prevent wheelchair users from using your van accessible parking spots.
