Sometimes, just because we thought we have already done everything we can to make our Plant City parking lot paving safe, we don’t stop to survey or review what possibly annoying mistakes we do with them. Sure, we’ve installed lights and made sure the lot is well-paved for all the motorists who are going to leave their cars here, but how sure are we that we are making the right decisions in every aspect of managing the parking lot?
Letting The Leaves And Other Debris Clog The Sewage
You need to assign someone to clean the parking lot and the driveway regularly. That means every day, actually. Fallen leaves and other debris can cause blockage in the sewage system. This leads to pools of water appearing on your parking lot. It is unsafe both for commuters and motorists. Clogging the drainage system also has a profound impact on the stability of the pavement. When it is soaked in water for a long time, the surface can weaken and water will seep into the base layer.
Forgetting To Paint Warning Signs And Parking Lines
Warning signs and parking lines are important to remind people how to park properly and which direction to go. Believe it or not, a lot of people still lack the proper etiquette of parking in public spaces. That being said, you may want to remind drivers that standing on a parking space is not tantamount to reserving it for an oncoming car. It doesn’t work that way. It’s still a first-come, first serve basis unless the establishment allows for the advanced reservation of a parking space.
Creating A Confusing Traffic Scheme In The Parking Lot
You know what this is, right? There are parking buildings that are too confusing you don’t know where to enter or exit. You’ll try to follow the arrows but they lead you to nowhere or to the same spot where you came from.
It’s confusing and annoying and no one wants to deal with this kind of problem when they are about to exit the parking building and is too excited to get home. Make sure that the entrances and exits are properly labeled, that there’s a one-way scheme for all motorists, and that there are warning signs for dead-ends.
Avoiding these mistakes will make your customers happy and satisfied. This could also help your brand’s reputation and you might see more customers coming your way.
