Dear Mister Condo,
Where do I find samples of warning stickers to post on parking offenders car?
Mister Condo replies:
E.C., I did a Google search on “parking lot warning notice stickers” and found several vendors who sell such stickers. But before I send you on your way with the notion that applying stickers to cars will make all of your parking lot problems magically disappear, let me leave you with some friendly advice.
Condominiums, apartment buildings, and any other high-density housing properties are going to face parking lot challenges. Gone are the days of “one family, one car”, so the notion that providing one parking space per unit is both antiquated and inadequate unless the housing is such as it features one resident per unit. Check your by-laws and make sure they are adequate in describing both the parking for residents and guests as well as the rules for violations. Signage in the parking lot can go a long way to dissuade folks from parking where they shouldn’t (fire lanes, T-parking, etc.) and a very public notice of “towing enforcement” combined with actual towing when offenses occur can really help keep the order in the parking lot. If these other policies are followed, there may be no need for parking lot warning stickers. Folks who have had to deal with the cost and inconvenience of having their vehicles towed aren’t likely to become repeat offenders. All the best!
