What is ADA Compliance:
“ADA parking lot compliance” refers to meeting the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) for parking lots. The ADA is a federal law in the United States that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities and requires certain accommodations to be made to ensure equal access and opportunity.
In terms of parking lots, there are several requirements under the ADA that must be met to ensure accessibility for individuals with disabilities. These requirements include:
- Number of accessible spaces: The number of accessible parking spaces required in a parking lot is determined by the total number of parking spaces in the lot. For example, if a parking lot has 100 spaces, it must have at least 4 accessible parking spaces.
- Location of accessible spaces: Accessible parking spaces must be located on the shortest accessible route to an accessible entrance. They must also be located near the accessible entrance and be identified with signage.
- Size of accessible spaces: Accessible parking spaces must be at least 96 inches wide and have an adjacent access aisle that is at least 60 inches wide. The access aisle must be connected to an accessible route that leads to an accessible entrance.
- Van-accessible spaces: If a parking lot has more than one accessible parking space, at least one of those spaces must be designated as van-accessible. Van-accessible spaces must have an access aisle that is at least 96 inches wide.
- Slope and surface of parking spaces: Accessible parking spaces and access aisles must be level, with a slope no greater than 1:48 in all directions. The surface of the parking spaces and access aisles must also be stable, firm, and slip-resistant.
Meeting these requirements is essential to ensure that individuals with disabilities have equal access to parking and can navigate parking lots safely and independently. It is important for businesses and organizations to regularly inspect their parking lots to ensure that they are in compliance with the ADA.
