Illinois State R7-8 Combo Handicap Parking Sign
Combo Disabled Parking Sign with Fine - 12" x 24" - Engineer Grade Prismatic Reflective Heavy-Gauge Aluminum Parking SignsIllinois Handicap Parking Signs from ADA Sign Depot are available with optional 3M 1160a transparent lamination.
This high-tech film protects the sign face from graffiti vandalism, harsh weather/sunlight, and virtually doubles the life span of the sign. If a sign protected with 1160a film is graffiti painted, the pain will not adhere and can be washed away with a mild detergent like Simple Green. If a label is placed on the sign, the label will not stick, and can be peeled away, eliminating the time and cost of having to buy new signs and replace vandalized signs.
This combination handicap reserved parking sign with fine amount sign is indicated in the Illinois Accessibility Code as being an alternate sign in lieu of utilizing 2 separate signs (R7-8 & R7-I-101 pair).
Sign must be mounted on a permanent post no lower than five feet from the pavement. The post must be mounted in the center of the 16-foot wide accessible parking space, no more than five feet from the front of the parking space. Municipalities may impose a larger fine (up to $350) through the adoption of a local ordinance.
Illinois state requires a violation sign to be installed, displaying the current fine amount for illegal parking in Handicapped stalls. In Illinois, this value was originally set at $50. It was updated in 1996 to $100; and again in 2006 to a minimum fine of $250 (with a maximum of $350 by local ordinance).
