Concrete car stops are placed in a parking stall to minimize the possibility of damage to both property and the vehicle. Car stops should be placed at the far edge of the parking space, where they'll be in the path of a vehicles tires. Never place a car stop in the center of the stall, the width of many vehicles will allow the automobile to roll right over it possibly damaging critical underside components. One 4ft car stop is usually placed in each stall, whereas 6ft car stops are typically split between two parking spaces. In most cases, when car stops are placed on asphalt pavement, they are anchored with two 12 inch long #5 rebar pins driven into the pavement.
