    • Language saying, “Unauthorized vehicles will be towed at the owner’s expense”, who can park there, and the hours that the restrictions are enforced.
    • Maximum towing and storage fees.
    • Name and telephone number of the local traffic law enforcement agency.
    • It must be 17″ x 22″ minimum.

My car was towed. What do I do?

Fire lane signage

  • The standard fire code requires you to post a 12” x 18” sign with 3” letters above fire lanes. In general, it’s the local authorities who set fire lane distances in the building code. You should be safe by posting signs every 25 feet, but make sure you check local fire and building codes, because they vary from city to city.
