ADA BUSINESS BRIEF:
Accessible Parking Spaces – Fact:
When a business re-stripes a parking lot, it must provide accessible parking spaces as required by the ADA Standards for Accessble Design.
Did you Know…..
Businesses or privately owned facilities that provide goods or services to the public have a continuing ADA obligation to remove barriers to access in existing parking lots when it is readily achievable to do so. Because re-striping is relatively inexpensive, it is readily achievable in most cases.
