How to Paint Your Parking Lot

Business owners and property manager have a lot to contend with. ADA regulations are broad and can have tremendous impact on your business and property. Consider the questions about just one topic: Parking spaces for your business.

How many parking spaces must be designated as reserved for people with disabilities? How many of those handicap parking spaces need to be Van Accessible? What signs does each parking space need to display? How should the parking space, and your parking lot, be painted, also called “striped”?

The Department of Justice has published an updated 4-page ADA technical assistance document: ADA Compliance Brief: Restriping Parking Spaces | PDF.

Click the above links to read online or download a pdf of the document. The document provides information about the features of accessible car and van parking spaces and how many accessible spaces are required under the ADA when parking facilities are restriped.

To find out more about the ADA, visit or call the Department’s toll-free ADA Information Line at 1-800-514-0301 or 1-800-514-0383 (TDD).
