  9. 9. Recommendations to operators: focus more on userfriendliness ● Paint floors, ceilings and walls in light colours to ensure more brightness and convey an improved sense of security ● Ensure good illumination, employing state-of-the-art, energy-efficient systems ● Keep signing to the necessary, useful minimum and use easy-toremember signs, e.g. pictograms ● Implement a consistent end-to-end guidance system for motorists and pedestrians
  10. 10. Recommendations to operators: focus more on userfriendliness ● Ensure video surveillance of all sensitive areas ● Provide clearly marked parking spaces with a minimum width of 3m for parents with children / buggies ● Provide clearly marked parking spaces for the disabled with a minimum width of 3.5m near exits and with barrier-free access, i.e. automatic doors, paths without stairs, and sufficiently wide lifts with low-placed control panels.
  11. 11. IMPROVING ● Provide easy-to-understand rates and user-friendly charging intervals (ideally on a per-minute basis) ● Enable cashless payment ● Ensure personal availability of staff, preferably by employing on-site staff and placing them in a clearly identifiable location
  12. 12. IMPROVING ● Ensure that all parking bays are at least 2.50m wide so that motorists can exit/enter their vehicles easily ● When building new car parks, ensure a minimum vertical clearance of 2m at the entrances to meet the requirements of modern vehicles ● Also ensure a maximum ramp inclination of 15% so that cars which have stopped can comfortably pull away again without any risk
