Striping & Painting

(No Parking Zones, Speed Zones, Crosswalks)

Striping and painting can be used to indicate both where an action is permitted or should take place (e.g., crosswalks, stop bars) and where an action is prohibited (e.g., no parking zones, bus stops). Paint can also serve as an alert to motorists that a change is needed (e.g., speed zones). Some striping and painting can improve the pedestrian environment by providing clarity, but overuse of this tool is a concern for some.
