Parking lot safety can be improved by providing drivers and pedestrians reasonable access pathways, and signs and pavement markings similar to those they typically encounter on public roads and walkways. Within most parking lots there are good features and bad – some add to safety and some create hazards for drivers and pedestrians.
The highway engineers at Robson Forensic are steeped in parking lot design. Their parking lot layout experience includes signage and pedestrian markings to enhance the safe and efficient management of vehicular and pedestrian traffic. Our engineers are familiar with the fluid nature of constantly-improving industry specific standards and concepts, and have experience working with owners, developers and other private entities as well as municipalities and State DOTs.
When appropriate to the scope of a case, our highway engineers are supported by experts in related disciplines, such as architecture, human factors, and facilities engineering. Please contact our experts directly to discuss how we may assist in your investigation.
