6.15.2. Pictographs. Type E1 sign panels use pictographs such as the "P" symbol for parking, the
no parking symbol, or the international symbol of access for the handicapped as the primary
graphic element. (Figure 2.31 for the regulation symbols.)
6.15.3. Verbal Message. A verbal message should be included to confirm the pictographic
message or to add special information such as "Visitor Parking."
6.15.4. Information and Mounting. To provide additional information, use another sign panel
below the main sign panel. Both panels should be mounted on the same backing sheet during
fabrication. All sign panels should have rounded corners.
Panels A, B, E, F, G and H: standard green "P" symbol and border on white background.
Colors may be reversed if desired.
Panels C and D: black "P" symbol and standard red circle with slash, border, and letters
on white background.
Panel J: white symbol, letters, and border on standard dark contrasting background. If
there is an established color scheme for this sign type in the surrounding community,
it is highly recommended that the same scheme be used on-base for easy recognition
6.15.6. Dimensions and Typography. Dimensions and message specifications are indicated in
Figure 6.12. All typography is upper and lower case Helvetica medium, centered.
6.16. Parking Regulation Sign Type E2.
6.16.1. Introductions. Use type E2 sign panels or curb markings to identify reserved parking
stalls. Wherever possible, reserved parking should be designated by area, rather than by
individual spaces, as the designations change frequently and numerous signs add to visual

designating spaces is possible.
