Parking Lot Wheel Stops
What Is A Wheel Stop?
Wheel stops are used to define a proper parking space for motorists and car owners. They are used to allocate a proper parking space for all the vehicles thus ensuring the discipline in the parking lot. They are used for multiple purposes such as stopping vehicles from hitting the back or side barriers or to stop them from entering a certain space. They are also referred to as parking blocks or parking curbs. They are useful in regulating traffic in emergency situations. They are useful in stopping the traffic from reaching hazardous points and are useful when there is a need to stop traffic immediately. Wheel stops help cars to stay in line at night time when there is little light to use and prevent them from over-speeding in crowded areas.
Wheel Stop Dimensions:
The dimensions of the wheel stops should be calibrated in such a way as to ensure safety for all types of vehicles and fulfilling the necessary purpose at the same time. They are available in three lengths i.e. three foot, four foot, and six foot. Sometimes, wheel stops of all sizes are placed one after the other to ensure that vehicles of all sort are being stopped. Sometimes, they are used to prohibit certain vehicles from entering the parking lot or certain roads. They are designed to fulfill their purpose in all sorts of weather conditions. The dimensions should be calibrated according to the dimensions of the tire so that the tire gets perfectly jammed and there is no possibility of any further movement. Improper dimensions can hurt the tires of the car badly and thus can be extremely risky for the travelers. Usually, wheel stops of all lengths and dimensions are made so as to help in controlling all types of traffic.
