Thinking of restriping your lot/structure? It's about to get more complicated: new ADA guidelines will take effect March 15, 2012 that will remove safe harbor clauses of the original 1991 law. That means lots that are striped after March 15 must meet the latest requirements for van accessible space ratios, and "readily achievable" architectural barriers between parking areas and business must be removed. Are you ready for these changes? Join us on this webinar to learn the most common parking ADA mistakes, what items must be fixed to comply with the new guidelines, and how to use a checklist to easily audit your facility and create a realistic plan.
