Managing the traffic and parking of vehicles is not just about allowing them to park somewhere or at specific times. It is also important to consider the gauge of each vehicle and to provide it with an adequate parking area. Large trucks and small cars will not be allowed to occupy the same areas. This would considerably complicate the movements of both. The ‘Truck Parking’ signs are used to orient truck drivers to areas specially designed for them.
Signs are often placed in the parking areas of supermarkets, hypermarkets, restaurants, small shops and supermarkets to allow suppliers to deliver their goods normally. They are also found in museums, schools, universities, businesses, warehouses and many others. There are several categories of truck parking signs: trucks delivery signs, receiving and shipping signs, wheel chock signs, loading dock signs and ‘No Idling’ signs.
Trucks are heavy and bulky vehicles and their gauge can cause traffic accidents. This is why it is important to control and manage the areas where they have to park. The signs, therefore, contribute to ensuring the safety of the trucks themselves, vehicles with a smaller gauge and pedestrians.
