Proper signage communicates in a concise and simple manner. Without signs, your parking lot would be in a constant state of disorder. This could result in the increased probability of vehicle accidents, collisions and injuries. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s not-in-traffic surveillance system, there has been an average of over 1,600 deaths each year as a result of non-traffic accidents. Non-traffic accidents are crashes that occur off the public roadways, such as in parking lot facilities. A well-organized parking lot with proper signage can prevent accidents, direct traffic and helps ensure the overall safety of anyone entering or leaving. The quality and visibility of your parking lot signs is an important part in the appearance and safety of your property
