Not All Handicap Stencils Are Equal--Make Sure You Are Using the Right Ones
Making sure you purchase the right handicap stencils is vital, because improperly stenciling your handicap spaces can lead to fines for being out of compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The ADA has very clear rules about marking handicap spaces, how wide the spaces should be, and how many you are required to have in your parking lot. You can find all of the information you'll need about compliance for handicap accessible parking spaces on their website.
The ADA only requires that you post signage indicating a spot, but your local state laws may require you to use parking lot stencils as well. Going above and beyond the requirements set by the ADA is a courtesy to your handicap customers, as well, giving them better visibility of available parking spots. It also gives your other customers better warning about restricted spaces, saving them from a ticket after they've overlooked an easily-missed sign. Plus, parking lot stenciling is an inexpensive process that makes your parking lot safer, look better, and boosts the overall image of your business.
