During 2019, a survey carried out by RAC Insurance, found that two-thirds of British motorists have experienced damage to their vehicles after parking in a car park and as much as 35% of us had their cars damaged at least once.
To tackle such high numbers, Riggotts may have the solution. “Sausage Bays” or “Fishfinger Bays” are the answer. Through the use of optical illusion, the specially designed bays create the illusion that the bays are smaller than they are – making people take greater care when parking their cars.
Where you’d find a regular bay line, you a see 100mm gap in its place with two lines either side. Creating this illusion has had a dramatic effect on the carparks efficiency, quality of parking and reduced the number of accidents in the car parks that have implemented this change.
Following the success, a number of clients asked Riggotts to carry out the new car park line markings to their premises – mainly to highly trafficked areas such as superstores and multi-story car parks.
Taking an active approach to updating and embracing new car park line markings, not only aids in professionality but gives the premises a modern, fresh layout – encouraging more people to use the new safety improved spaces.
