As car ownership continues to thrive, the increase of cars in major thoroughfares becomes unstoppable. The number of cars continues to swell, but the sizes of roads do not. See the problem?
If this increase in car ownership impacts the roads, so does it affect parking lots. Developments (if any) in parking areas hardly cover this demand. Remember that troubles in parking result to traffic congestion in the surrounding areas. This is why parking managements constantly find ways to improve their service. Many have looked at digital signage for help.
LED signs give valuable information to car owners: available slots, directions, maximum clearance height, etc. This works even better in basement level parking lots where the signs can be seen much better. If placed at the entrance, a full color LED sign that acts as an announcement board will certainly get noticed.
Better lighting, saves on energy
LED technology offers better and more cost-effective lighting. Remember that LED lights last longer than ordinary lights like fluorescent and incandescent and they are maintenance-free.
Lessens search time
Because the directions are clear and the signage readily says if there are open slots, searching time is greatly reduced. This way, parking mileage is also reduced.
A good parking system prevents congestion not just inside the parking lot, but also as aforementioned, the roads surrounding it. LED signage promotes order inside, which can affect the outside especially where roads are narrow.
LED signs are a big help in parking areas, whether big or small. If used correctly, all roads will point to a much improved parking system. In the next blog post, we’ll tell you what makes a good car park.
