3 Big Mistakes with Safety and Parking Signs

Designing a parking lot that is safe for motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists is no easy task. While local and state governments provide rules and regulations that must be adhered to, these regulations do not always guarantee safety. Proper usage of safety and parking signs can help ease congestion in the parking lot area and keep pedestrians and bicyclists safe at the same time. Parking lot designs have improved greatly over the last few decades and provide properly sized parking spaces, highly visible handicap areas and safety lights. While these improvements have helped make parking lots safer, there are still several other big mistakes that are commonly made when designing parking lots. Below is a list of three common parking lot mistakes that can easily be fixed with proper placement of parking and safety signs.

1. Safe Pedestrian and Bicyclist Walkways
Parking lots are typically designed with motorists in mind, but it is important that special consideration is given to pedestrians and bicyclists. This will help to create greater safety for everyone using the parking lot. Pedestrian and bicycle walkways should be clearly marked in front of the store area with bright yellow pedestrian walkway signs. This will help employees and customers know exactly where they can safely cross the parking lot. Many businesses are successfully using portable Stop signs at these walkways for added protection. No parking signs should also be placed in front of the store in order to keep these pedestrian and bicyclist’s walkways clear from obstructions. A clearly marked bicycle parking area should be designated near the front of the store.

2. Use of Roadway Signs
It may seem odd to place signs that are typically seen on the roadway in a parking lot, but these safety signs can help direct motorists. Speed Limit signs are becoming more commonly seen in parking lots and can prevent people from driving too fast throughout the parking lot area. These special Speed Limit signs range from 5 to 20 miles per hour and are dependent on the specific type of parking lot. Many parking lots use arrows painted onto the parking lot surface to regulate traffic within the lot area, but this type of signage is often hard to see and causes confusion. However, One Way signs and Do Not Enter signs are easy to see and can help regulate traffic and minimize congestion within the parking lot. Entrance and Exit signs also help direct traffic as motorists travel into and out of the parking lot.

3. Proper Notice of Towing
There is almost always times when a car will simply need to be removed from the parking lot because it is parked where it should not be or is left in the parking lot for an extended period of time. When this happens, it is often necessary to have the vehicle towed. It is important to understand that businesses owners cannot just remove any car in the parking lot they want because there is a set of regulations that must be followed or the businesses owner takes a chance of paying for the towing fees. Each locality and state has its own set of rules pertaining to towing vehicles, but typically business owners are obligated to provide motorist with proper notice that their vehicle may be towed. A Notice of Towing sign meets these requirements and should be placed at each entrance to the parking lot, as well as, within the parking lot area. Keeping the parking lot clear of these unwanted vehicles helps to provide ample parking for employees and customers and minimize parking lot congestion.

Here are some Universal Access or Handicap signs that you should probably know:

Get to know the Universal Ski Access Sign – this sport is on fire!
Snow fun is not limited to people without disabilities. People with disabilities are joining the fun with each passing ski season. This means more and more ski resorts are increasingly aware that families want to be able to enjoy an activity where all family members can participate. Currently, there are over 150 ski resorts in France that offer adaptive ski programs for disabled individuals. It can be very time consuming trying to find a resort to accommodate your needs. Catherine Cosby operates a non-profit foundation called Ski 2 Freedom, the company will advise families or individuals with disabilities, how to find the right resort to meet your needs. There are many adaptive ski programs in the US that offer safe and supportive alpine ski lessons for adults and children with a wide range of disabilities. Other winter outdoor sports gaining popularity with people who have disabilities are cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, ice skating and kick sledding.

Lets Take A Look At The Universal Access For Camping!
Accessible camping is another outdoor activity growing in popularity. With that popularity you will notice more wheelchair accessible camping sites popping up all over this great nation. When you see the sign it means campsites are designed to be more accessible to wheelchair users. These designated hard-packed level sites feature pedestal grills and accessible picnic tables. However, just because you see a universal access sign for camping, it does not mean the showers and restrooms are equipped. Before you decide on a campground make sure it meets all the requirements and not just some of them.

Fishing Is A Fantastic Sport To Accompany Camping!
Have you noticed any universal access fishing signs lately? The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a civil rights law that requires all newly constructed fishing piers and platforms be usable by individuals with disabilities. Guidelines require minimum accessibility for newly constructed fishing platforms and piers. It provides specifications for elements on a pier or platform to create a basic level of usability for people with disabilities. Mainly it focuses ensuring that people with disabilities are able to access the fishing platform or pier. Other items included in this addresses elements commonly found at a fishing facility, like parking spaces, and restroom and bathing facilities.

Boating Is Also Growing In Popularity!
The ADA also requires all newly constructed boating facilities be usable by individuals with disabilities. This includes all commonly found elements at a boating facility, like restrooms, parking spaces, routes, and ramps. The accessible routes must connect accessible buildings, boating facilities, and other spaces. There are many wheelchair accessible boats and yachts on the market now too. It’s time to get outdoors and go boating. Sails up!

Please familiarize yourself with the universal access signs you may not know. We are all working together to make this a better place for all.

4 Tips To Keep You From Getting Killed By An Animal While Driving

tips on driving around animals
Share

Have you ever been driving down the road and a coyote, fox, deer or some other animal darts out in front of your vehicle? It happens everyday and sometimes you miss it and it’s road kill. The problem is always going to exist. To avoid a collision with an animal, observe road signs and learn these defensive driving techniques.

1. Don’t risk your life.
It’s a fact that more people are injured and killed from hitting another object when they swerve sharply to avoid an animal, than those that don’t and hit the animal. Always maintain control of your vehicle, sometimes, it may be impossible to avoid a collision with an animal. Your safety should always come before the animals. Don’t veer if it will put you or another motorist in harms way. Colliding with an animal on the road is a comprehensive insurance claim, which is a minimal deductible with no premium increases.

2. Use your lights and put them on high beams when driving in an area with high animal traffic at night.
Of course, don’t use high beams when other cars are approaching. Animals are most active at dawn and dusk – that is also when our eyesight is compromised and headlights are least effective. Try to plan your driving at another time to avoid driving at dawn or dusk.

3. Don’t become distracted.
Cell phones, the radio, dropped objects, and children can be distractions and you’ll be tempted to take your eyes off the road, don’t do it! Always be aware of the road and activity to the side of the road. If you are traveling on a road with heavy brush on the sides, know there is a large possibility you may spot an animal. Some animals eyes have a reflective layer of ocular tissue called tapetum lucidum, it makes their eyes easy to spot at night. Scan the night environment looking for two greenish or yellow dots. Be on alert because some animals travel in a packs, so if you see one – expect more. Practice defensive driving.

4. The speed limit may be 55 or 60 mph, but you should slow way down when traveling at dawn or dusk in high animal traffic areas.
Be especially aware at times of the year when animals are most active. If there is a water source, like a pond or stream, nearby know there is a higher potential to see an animal, so slow down. When you drive at a decreased speed it increases your reaction time. Time is of the essence when reacting to an animal running in front of your vehicle. You may even be able to stop and avoid the collision.

It’s not always possible to avoid a collision but you can always practice good driving techniques for any situation. Take the time to understand the route you’re driving and you won’t be caught off guard next time an animal darts in front of your vehicle. So stay alert, don’t give in to distraction, avoid driving at dawn or dusk, pay attention to road signs warning of animal activity, and please remember your safety comes first.

7 Safety Secrets for Construction Signs

construction sign safety
Share

Everybody who has ever been on a construction site knows that this can be a very dangerous place to be. There is constantly falling debris, in-use power tools and other aspects that make the entire site a dangerous place for anyone who is unsuspecting and without the proper safety gear. In order to protect the site and the liability of the company involved, it is important to know the 7 main safety secrets of how having the right construction signs located throughout the construction site will keep everybody safe.

7. Parking Signs at Entrances
When there are signs that point to the fact that the area being entered is a construction site, many people will begin to take safety precautions before they exit their vehicle. They will be sure to be watching out for the workers and any dangers that may be present. There are safety signs that state “Construction Site Parking Only” and other similar signs that when posted in parking spots will help visitors to see that they are entering a construction zone.

6. No Trespassing Signs
It really is a no-brainer that an active construction site should not be entered by any unauthorized personnel when the workday is done, but it never hurts to have signs that state the fact. Even if an unauthorized person comes onto the site after hours and gets hurt, the company may still be held liable. Having posted signs that state “No Trespassing” helps in the case to show the company took every precaution to keep unwelcomed guests off the site.

5. Signs That Specify Equipment Needed
Most construction sites have signs that specify that it is a hard hat area, but many forget the other types of safety gear that helps workers to stay safe are necessary. Gear like safety goggles, steel toe boots and various types of vests help to protect workers in different areas of the site. Using signs that specify which safety gear needs to be worn in which areas of the construction site will help to prevent injuries.

4. Be Bilingual
Many people who are living in the country today do not speak much English, therefore, everybody needs to be sure that when important messages are being relayed, they should be relayed in multiple languages. It is important that when construction site signs are placed, they are in multiple languages to ensure that everybody stays safe.

3. Look up Signs
Construction sites often have signs that state when people are entering the construction zone, but most of the injuries caused on these sites come from falling debris. When there are signs placed strategically around where workers are overhead, those walking or working under them are more aware of the work going on above them.

2. Hard Hat Signs
Hard hat signs are some of the most important signs that are found on a construction site. They state that workers and visitors need to wear these hats at all times, just in case there is falling debris.

1. Make Signs Specific to the Job
Every construction site is different, and every company is different. Making the safety signs specific to your job and your company will allow you to create a safer atmosphere for everybody. When you make your own sign, you can state specific company guidelines like the different types of safety gear needed, which workers are allowed access to various areas, and even what types of heavy machinery are actively working in that area.

Top 4 Problems With Traffic Signs

problems with traffic signs
Share

Traffic signs are designed to help improve safety on our streets and highways, making it easier for drivers to understand (and follow) the rules of the road and navigate to their destination. In an ideal world, regulatory and warning signs should help to improve the flow of traffic, reduce accidents and ensure that pedestrians can safely use designated crosswalks. Unfortunately, the reality is that traffic signs are less than perfect; in some cases, roadside signs have been linked to an increase in traffic congestion, pollution and the misuse of neighborhood streets as alternatives to designated commuter routes. Worse yet, traffic signs have been blamed for increased accident rates, particularly among rear-end collisions. Here are the top four problems with traffic signs:

1) Traffic Signs Can Lead To “Distracted Driving”

While a few clear, well-placed signs serve to help improve traffic flow and safety, once drivers have to contend with multiple signs involving speed limits, turn restrictions, time of day regulations and other road rules, distracted driving becomes a serious issue. Drivers are simply unable to navigate safely while simultaneously locating and reading numerous traffic signs – this sign-induced form of distracted driving has been blamed for numerous crashes, particularly at busy urban and suburban intersections.

2) Too Many Signs Leads To Information Overload

In areas where there are simply too many signs, drivers are at risk of simply “tuning out” the signs altogether – the result of information overload. According to British transportation secretary Patrick McLoughlin, excessive roadside signage can actually make driving more dangerous in the UK, a feeling shared by the numerous lobby groups in that country that are working to eliminate confusing, redundant and unnecessary signs.

3) Signs Can Make Drivers Less Defensive

Another major problem with traffic signs is trust; most drivers comply with signs directing them to yield, stop, turn left from the left turn lane and merge when told to, however, not all drivers follow the rules of the road. Traffic signs can cause drivers to let down their guard and drive less defensively than they should be, based on the unrealistic belief that all drivers will comply with the rules expressed through traffic signs. Many serious crashes involving drivers running red lights could be avoided if all drivers checked the intersection before entering it, regardless of the color of the light.

4) Traffic Signs Are Expensive

According to the Wyoming Department of Transportation, installing a single traffic light costs between $200,000 and $500,000, a cost which is ultimately passed along to drivers in the form of increased taxes on gas and vehicle registration fees.

Remember that while reading and understanding roadside signs are an important part of safe driving, traffic signs aren’t perfect – be extra cautious in areas where there is an abundance of signs, and never assume that other drivers will comply with traffic signs. Always drive defensively and avoid the temptation to read too many signs at once

Road Signs and Safety

Road Signs and Safety
Share

The use of road signs and safety for all who use those roads go hand in hand. For many people, little thought is given to road signs except when they seem to impede their traveling. Without them, however, there is little doubt travelers would find a completely different world out there on the roads.

Why Road Signs Are Necessary
There are a number of different reasons why road signs are necessary in the busy and congested streets of today. It was not very long after the automobile began to catch on that such signs became necessary for many reasons that sought to address a greater number of vehicles as well as pedestrians in the same area at the same time.

Safety is Number One
This is probably the number one reason for having road signs. Warnings of sharp curves, rough roads and construction areas ahead all serve to provide drivers with an ample amount of time to adjust their speed so they can maintain control of their vehicles. However, people traveling inside cars are not the only ones who are protected when the right signs are used. Pedestrians are afforded a safe crossing from one side of a busy intersection to another by the strategic location of a crosswalk sign and the accompanying crosswalk area on the pavement, for example.

Maintaining Order Keeps Safety at the Forefront
Closely related tor safety is the ability of road signs to maintain a semblance of order among the thousands of cars that transverse the roads. From school zone signs that warn drivers to drive more slowly to allow buses to exit the school grounds to signs that warn of upcoming streets so drivers can prepare to make the necessary turns, order is maintained in a way so that traffic flow is not impeded and safety is guarded.

An Absence of Road Signs Would Mean Chaos
Sometimes people complain about road signs. They might not want to slow down when traveling through areas that are known to be heavily congested or that feature many slow moving trucks traversing the roads in and out of a business park, for example.

  • Protect Lives: Another example of a road sign that some people would rather ignore are those that warn of oncoming trains. Though the trains might cause delays, without the presence of signs to warn of a train crossing, it is likely that more people would be killed or injured each year due to being surprised by their presence.
  • Protect Resources: Road signs that warn drivers to keep their vehicles off the grass or to avoid parking except in places designated as such help protect fragile resources such as the grass and other foliage.

Work With Road Signs Instead of Against Them
Road signs provide people with the means to reach their destinations safely and easily. Without them, people would not be warned of the dangers that await them up ahead. Deer crossing signs, for example, remind drivers that the area is well known for its prevalence of deer sightings. Slowing their speed and being extra vigilant while driving through these areas can make a different for those drivers who would otherwise be unaware of the deer population.

The History of the Yield Sign

yield sign
Share

The yield sign is one of the most common signs on the road today, used everywhere from quiet suburban boulevards to busy multi-lane highways. Classified by the United States Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) as an “R1-2 Regulatory Sign,” it is considered to be one of the most important road signs, ranking just below the stop sign in terms of its usefulness in maintaining order on our public streets and thoroughfares.

Tulsa, Oklahoma – Birthplace of the Yield Sign
Like most inventions, the yield sign was developed to solve a widespread, and growing, problem – traffic accidents caused by drivers failing to yield the right-of-way. In 1950, Clinton Riggs, a Highway Trooper in Tulsa, Oklahoma, concluded that a sign was needed at the corner of Columbia Avenue and First Street to remind drivers about the law requiring them to slow down and respect the right-of-way of other drivers. Officer Riggs believed that such a sign would help to both reduce crashes and clarify which driver was at fault; within one year of the installation of his “Yield” sign, vehicle crashes at the test intersection dropped dramatically, leading to the widespread installation of yield signs on roadways throughout the country.

The Four-Sided Yield Sign
According to traffic sign enthusiast Stephen Salcedo, owner of the website “My Crazy Hobby,” one of the rarest types of yield sign was the the four-sided yield sign, shaped like an upside-down trapezoid. Used in low-traffic areas (like residential neighborhoods) in California throughout the 1950’s as an alternative to the stop sign, these signs were yellow with either painted or embossed black writing. The text on these unique signs read “Yield Right of Way” rather than just the standard “Yield”; by the 1960s, these four-sided signs were replaced with the standard inverted triangular yield signs.

The Yellow Years
According to the website TrafficSign.us, yield signs throughout the United States were solid yellow with a narrow black border and the word “Yield” written in solid black letters for almost two decades [http://www.trafficsign.us/yellowyield.html]. The yellow yield sign was introduced in 1954 in the U.S. DOT’s MUTCD (Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices)

The Yield Sign Today
In accordance with U.S. Department of Transportation regulations, yield signs on public roads throughout the country were standardized in 1971 to help minimize confusion for drivers traveling through different states. The modern American yield sign is an inverted, symmetrical triangle; the outer edge of the sign is bordered with a thick, solid red line while the word “yield” is printed onto the inside white triangle in red, capitalized letters.

Variations On The Yield Sign
While the yield sign is most often displayed on its own, in some circumstances, the red and white “yield” triangle is added onto another sign to convey a more detailed message about what, or who, drivers are expected to yield to. One common example of a blended yield sign is found in states where drivers must yield to pedestrians; in these states, rectangular white regulatory signs with both a printed yield sign and an image of a pedestrian are often posted at crosswalks to remind drivers they must yield to pedestrians.

Regardless of where a yield sign is displayed or what color (or shape) it is, throughout the world, the meaning remains the same; drivers must be prepared either to slow down or to stop in order to “give way” to pedestrians, cyclists and other vehicles who have the right-of-way.

Top 5 Road Signs for Pedestrian Safety

Share

There is a wide variety of pedestrian and road signs that are used to prevent accidents from occurring or protect people from various dangers. Each sign is designed in a special color and includes a specific symbol or lettering making it easily distinguishable for everyone. It is extremely important that everyone understands the meaning of these various safety signs in order to protect themselves and their families. There are many different safety signs used in society, but below is a list of the top ten safety signs.

1. Stop Signs
Stop signs are the most commonly recognized safety sign, as well as the most used sign. These signs are designed in bright red with the word STOP spelled out in white across the sign. Whether on the roadway, in a parking lot or on a school bus, the stop sign alerts drivers to stop immediately upon reaching the sign.

2. Caution Signs
Caution signs are typically yellow and commonly triangular in shape. A caution safety sign is used to alert someone to proceed with extra care or to take extra precautions when using a specific item. Hospitals usecaution signs to warn workers of toxic/hazardous waste material, and road crews use these signs to alert drivers that there is road construction ahead.

3. Danger Signs
Danger signs are used to warn people that a certain area may be extremely hazardous. This type of sign usually has a red circle at the top with the word DANGER written in white. The bottom portion of the signincludes specific information about what the exact danger is. Numerous workplaces use danger signs for many types of hazards, such as a high voltage area, construction area or hardhat area.

4. Do Not Enter Signs
Do not enter signs are either white with black bold letters or red with white lettering and include the words DO NOT ENTER. These signs are used to tell people or employees that they are not permitted to go past a certainpoint. This is often done to protect people from various hazards.

5. Crosswalk Signs
Pedestrian walkway signs are important for both the driver and the pedestrian. The signs indicate areas where a person is permitted to cross the street. They are yellow, diamond-shaped signs that show a picture of a person crossing the street. The signs let pedestrians know where it is safe to cross the street, and alert drivers to the fact that people may be crossing the street.
