Where reverse-in parking is unlikely, e.g. at 30, 45 and 60 degree angle parking modules with one-way aisles, or where occasional minor encroachment (up to about 400 mm) by a reverse-in vehicle can be tolerated, e.g. over a kerb, wheel stop positions shall be set at the front-in position.
If reverse-in parking is likely and encroachment over the end of the parking space cannot be tolerated, wheel stop positions shall be set at the rear-in position and all vehicles required to back in.
