Use caution entering the parkade if you’re have to go over a sidewalk area. Check the height restriction for the building to see if your vehicle will clear the structure. Don’t cut off any pedestrians approaching. Some parkades have a ticket dispenser followed by a gate at the point of entry. You are expected to press a button to have a ticket dispensed and for the gate to rise. If you can’t reach the button from your driver’s seat, put the vehicle into park before unbuckling your seat belt to reach further to press the button or to exit the vehicle to press the button. You will then use this ticket to pay for parking when leaving the parkade. Don’t lose this ticket.
Depending on the design of the parkade that you’re you make have to yield to the traffic coming up or going down to the floor that you’re on. Be sure to look and see who has the yield sign. If you’re ever not sure yield the right of way. Also when you’re leaving a parkade or any other type of paid parking with gate control, you may have the option to prepay before getting into your vehicle for an expedited exit. It may save you time rather than waiting in the ticket booth line at the point of exit. This becomes a huge time saver around rush hour when everyone’s leaving the parkade around the same time.
When you’re leaving a parkade and onto a road, you need to stop before the sidewalk or area where pedestrians may be walking. Pull out carefully and yield to any traffic on the road and wait for a safe gap. So if you know it will take you 3 seconds to make your turn then the traffic approaching should be at least 6 seconds away.
