Fire Lanes

The design and location of fire lanes shall be according to standards set by the Fire Department, which shall be based on the assumption that the parking of vehicles in fire lanes is prohibited.

Owners of property on which fire lanes are established shall be responsible for providing required pavement markings and obtaining appropriate signage, at owner's expense, in accordance with Village Ordinances. Once posted, the Village will impose fines for violators parking in these restricted areas.

Fire lane signs should be spaced no further than 150’ apart. Additional signage may be required where sight obstructions exist to adequately inform the motorists of the restricted area.

Signs should be installed a minimum of 7’ from the bottom of the sign to the sidewalk. The left edge of the sign should be no closer than 2’ to the curb face (Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Standards).
