Your parking lot is an important asset, so you probably take the appropriate steps to prolong its life. You have cracks filled quickly and have fresh sealcoating applied periodically to protect the integrity of your pavement and its supporting foundation. However, if you are ignoring your pavement markings, it could be costing you money in some unexpected ways.
Cost Benefits to Striping & Pavement Marking – Annoying Your Customers or Tenants
Most humans have an innate need for order. They want to at least know the rules even if they choose not to follow them. If there are no stripes to define parking spaces, drivers will not be sure where they should park. Other drivers may park too near, making it difficult or impossible for them to enter their vehicles when they are ready to leave. Without pavement markings to direct the flow of traffic, drivers may be confused or distracted. Parking lots that lack proper markings are annoying enough, but they also increase the chances that vehicles will suffer dents and scrapes or be involved in an accident, exacerbating the annoyance that drivers feel. Annoyed customers may take their business elsewhere; annoyed tenants may refuse to renew their leases.
Cost Benefits to Striping & Pavement Marking – You Could Be Fined or Sued
Your parking lot must be ADA-compliant and meet any local codes that are applicable. You could be fined for failure to comply. Lawsuits could arise due to your non-compliance, but you could also be sued if someone is injured on your property or has a car damaged as a result of missing pavement markings.
Cost Benefits to Striping & Pavement Marking – You Could Be Driving Away Potential Customers or Tenants
Potential tenants or customers may judge you by the quality of your parking lot. If there are no parking spaces defined and no pavement markings, they may perceive you as uncaring or unprofessional. Unfortunately, you may never know how many people simply drove off without giving you a chance.
