Community Intervention to Deter Illegal Parking in Spaces for the Physically Disabled.
Cope, John G.; Allred, Linda J.
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v24 n4 p687-93 Win 1991
Illegal parking in spaces reserved for people with physical disabilities was examined across three conditions: a vertical sign alone or in combination with a message sign announcing public surveillance or a message device dispensing reminder notes and announcing community involvement. Messages increasing expectation of negative social consequences augmented the effectiveness of standard signs. (Author/JDD)
