The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal civil rights law that grants equal rights and access to those with disabilities. Under this law, businesses and commercial buildings must be sure their parking lots offer ADA parking and appropriately accommodate persons with disabilities. While some violations of this law are easily spotted, other problems can often go unnoticed and cause serious safety issues.
As the property manager, you’ll need to continuously monitor your parking lots for any possible violations and be sure they’re always up to the current code. Violations of ADA parking regulations can result in injuries and even lawsuits. To avoid any complications with your parking lots, it’s always best to be proactive and mindful of the code.
