Thames-Coromandel District Council in New Zealand have incorporated Replas bright yellow wheel stops as part of an upgrade to their car parking areas around the Peninsula and are finding they are a successful alternative to other options. The high visibility of the wheel stops means there is no need to purchase models with built-in reflectors, which are frequently dislodged by impact with turning car tyres. According to Scott Farrell, Parks and Reserves Officer at the Mercury Bay office, ‘We have Replas wheel stops installed at high profile parking sites exposed to coastal conditions. We have not noticed any issue with colour fade or fragility’. Scott added that, ‘They are strong enough to take the larger vehicles that use our parks, the price is competitive and supply good’.
