There must be at least a six-foot clear walkway from the building, to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The bicycle rack cannot be located directly in front of a store/building entrance or exit, nor in a driveway. The bicycle rack cannot be located closer to the curb than two feet. Three feet from the curb is ideal, although in certain circumstances, the distance may be greater.
If you have questions about whether a particular bicycle parking rack you are considering using meets any of these requirements, please contact Madrax customer service and consult your local regulations.
