Whether it be a private property, a commercial property or an institutional property, every property owner needs to have wheel stops installed in their parking area. Wheel stops are vital to the safety of both pedestrian and car. We have all heard of cases where a motorist forgot to turn off a hand or floor break. Some of these cases have gone ahead to be costly and even tragic.
Below are three key reasons why we need wheel stops in parking lots:
They help prevent pedestrian-related accidents
Although many would argue that curbs can suffice to bar vehicle movements, this isn't the case. Wheel stops work more effectively to instantly stop any moving vehicle. They have been specifically designed to hinder wheel movement. That's why there are vital to the prevention of accidents resulting from accidentally moving vehicles.
There are cases where motorists in a hurry to get out forget to turn off the breaks. There are also cases where car breaks turn out to be broken and faulty. All these can lead to the car taking off on its own once it has been parked. We all understand how disastrous the outcome of this can be, the car can ram into pedestrians and so on. This is why we need wheel stops to prevent such kind of eventualities. The wheel stop will instantaneously stop any moving vehicle.
Still, in regards to pedestrian safety, wheel stops help prevent curb overhangs. The stops confine every car to its designated space thereby prevent overhangs. This being, pedestrians can safely walk on the passageway allocated to them.
Wheel stops prevent damage to the cars in the parking lot
Though one would expect to have their car damaged on roads and highways, there have been numerous cases where cars have sustained damages on parking lots. There are many cases of cars banging into each other at parking bays. This can be avoided when wheel stops are properly installed in place.
A wheel stop will prevent cars in opposite parking slots from encroaching into your space. This will prevent collisions and damages which can possibly result from that. Collisions can damage your bonnet, dent your car body, and shatter the rear glass among much more. All these will cost you in terms of repairs and replacement.
Most importantly, however, we need not forget that a parking lot collision can also turn out fatal. This is especially if they happen with a lot of force. There are for example cases where drunk drivers ram into other cars while attempting to park. Wheel stops help prevent such accidents. In addition, they also safeguard against accidents from faulty breaks or ones left running.
Wheel stops spare motorists damage costs and legal suits
When your car rams into another car or injures a pedestrian at the parking lot, chances are high that you will have to sustain various costs. The aggrieved party can sue you for personal injury and property damage. Depending on the scale of injuries or damages, this can leave your bank account dented. It's always better therefore that parking bays have wheel stops to help prevent such occurrence. Most essentially, however, wheel stops should be installed for safety purposes.
