Accessibility: Accessible Sign Height

The American Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG) specifies accessible parking stall must have a permanent sign for each parking stall.  Without a sign, the stall is not considered an accessible stall.  In earlier ADAAG versions, the sign height must be visible when a vehicle parked in the stall.  The latest ADAAG now requires the sign height must be five feet from the pavement to the bottom of the sign.  

We suggest the bottom of the main sign be place at six feet.  This allows for adding the smaller fine and van signs.  Isn’t this sign base one of the most unique that you’ll run across?
