The Importance of Clear Traffic Markings

by | May 28, 2020 | Asphalt | 0 comments

It is crucial to ensure that you maintain a parking lot that has clear traffic markings. When the traffic markings sustain damage or become worn down, it will be difficult for your customers to identify where to park and can cause many additional issues to occur on your property. When you have your parking lot restriped or otherwise fixed, you can ensure the best possible functionality and appearance for your commercial property. Here are a few things to consider about the importance of clear traffic markings on your property.

Clear Traffic Markings Provide Clear Instructions

When traffic markings aren’t quite clear, the instructions that they provide will be similarly convoluted. Obtaining new markings for your property helps to provide far clearer, concise instructions for drivers. This helps to guarantee that they understand what to do when they drive on the property. It is important to ensure that the traffic markings are uniform in order to protect both vehicles and drivers alike. This will help to improve the functionality and appearance of your parking lot.  

Improved Clarity

It is important that the traffic markings on your property are easy for drivers to see. When drivers can’t make out the markings, they will ultimately be rendered useless. It can become difficult to see traffic markings in inclement weather. The appropriate steps can ensure that they are far easier to see. Other issues with the traffic markings arise when they are worn out or relatively difficult to see.

Help to Direct Traffic

Clear traffic markings help to keep your parking lot far more organized. They ensure that the traffic on your property is directed far more efficiently, which results in far better traffic flow. With the appropriate markings, you can ensure that confusion and miscommunication are minimized on your specific property.

Uses of Clear Traffic Markings

There are many common functions that clear traffic markings serve on a property. Traffic markings can be used to mark pedestrian crossings and ensure that there is a safe place for customers to walk in the parking lot. They also help to inform drivers of the parking regulations inside of the property and ensure that the cars are spaced apart appropriately. Speed regulations can be outlined with the use of traffic markings. They help to direct traffic, as well as provide hazard warnings on roads and parking lots.

Traffic Markings Help to Minimize Confusion

When people are confused while driving on the property, it can easily lead to accidents. It is important to minimize confusion and prevent incidents on your commercial property. This can easily be done with the use of traffic markings on the lot.

Enhanced Durability

It is critical to ensure that you obtain traffic markings that have high levels of durability. Without this quality, the markings will likely fade quickly. Parking lots see a substantial amount of traffic and wear. Durable materials will help to ensure that your traffic markings last for a far longer period of time.

Improved Appearance

Clear traffic markings help to ensure that your property maintains a far better appearance. When a parking lot has worn out or damaged markings, it is likely that the entire parking lot will seem similarly worn down. New, pristine traffic markings ensure that your parking lot will maintain a pristine appearance, as well.

Prevent Damage on your Property

If customers’ vehicles sustain damage on your property, they will be unlikely to return to your building. This can cause financial loss to your business. When cars are parked too close on the property, due to narrow traffic markings, it is easy for damage to occur. Car doors can scratch other vehicles when the driver exits their own vehicle. Clear traffic markings help to ensure that each car is parked far enough away from other cars. These markings can also be used to indicate where shopping carts should go, which can prevent them from causing damage to peoples’ cars.

Clear Parking Directions

With clear traffic markings come clear parking directions. These directions help to make sure that no one parks in the wrong place. Without clear markings, it is possible that customers will accidentally park in loading areas, emergency areas, or other prohibited locations.  

Smoother Business Operations

It is important to ensure that you maintain an effective parking lot. A parking lot that is ineffective and poorly marked will have a huge impact on the overall satisfaction of your customers. When your customers are displeased with your parking lot, they may not continue to frequent your business.

ADA Compliance

It is important for businesses to comply with ADA regulations. This often involves setting designated handicapped spaces inside of the parking lot. It is crucial to ensure that these markings are clear on your parking lots. The appropriate markings can go a long way toward ensuring that your property meets all specific regulations.

Maximize your Parking Lot’s Capacity

The appropriate markings can help to ensure that you have adequate parking space for your customers. If customers are unable to park, it is likely that they won’t do business with you. The appropriate markings also help to ensure that cars are not put too close together, which can cause damage to occur to other vehicles. Implementing effective traffic markings on your property helps to maximize your parking lot’s capacity without reducing its overall functionality.

You've been warned.Less than a year after having a parking... slab paved, weeds started pushing their way up THROUGH the asphalt. I tried to give them a chance to stand behind their work. I assumed they knew how to put a base down. Instead I was informed that it was my fault for not controlling the weeds. And that customer weed control was "part of the agreement". They were happy to provide a quote on how much it would cost for them to come out and seal their own work. So let this be a warning to the next person that needs paving work done. Don't let anything grow anywhere near your new TopJob driveway for at least a couple years or you'll be stuck where I am, researching a different company to come do the job over again.read more

What Our Customers Are Saying

Very impressed with the quality of their work and the organization of the company. The project estimator was spot on as to when the bid would be received and the work was professional  from start to finish. I appreciated the opportunity for a walkthrough inspection after the crack filling was completed as I had some very large cracks in the asphalt. I give this company a ten out of ten (which I really do) and highly recommend them.
