There are a number of uses for wheel stops. Chances are, you’ve already used them before, and you just didn’t know they are called by that name. Wheel stops can prevent damages to some properties like stalls, street fixtures, and many others. They can also prevent damage to your vehicles, as well as to the other vehicles.
Wheel stops can be used to protect your front yard, especially if you’re very near to the streets. As with bollards, wheel stops can also be used to prevent vehicles from accessing a particular area temporarily.
