SmartSign by Lyle SmartSign Aluminum Sign : not cheap, thick aluminum, quality that probably will last

I have to be very careful backing out of my driveway in reverse, turning, stopping, then going forward. Because where i stop is close to where guests/friends of the neighbors directly across from me, park their cars when visiting. I have to be careful particularly if it’s night time, or drizzling, or both and with my backup lights which are not very strong. August 2013 i forgot & backed into the left rear door panel of a nice cadillac. $1400 damage to it, $1100 damage to my car. So i bought this no parking sign. It’s small, 6” x 12”, sort of discrete, not too big like the 12” x 18″signs, it’s reflective. Built a small, exterior plywood base, 12 x 12″, painted it black, put the no parking sign on a cedar 20” high on the base. Put it 1 foot from the curb, on the street, exactly where the neighbor’s would park.

High-quality sign that was easy to hang with wire through the two holes on our driveway gate.

Great looking sign with a “vintage” / classic feel.

High quality sign and super reflective.

  • Delighted with this purchase!
  • Thick tough big bright – just the facts m’am, no threats
  • Cute and Functional

Stay out of my driveway dammit.

Sign was easy to mount to a chain link or wrought iron fence. Highly visible from the street. People still manage to park in front of the driveway claiming they didn’t see the sign. One claimed he didn’t notice the driveway, but that is for them and the tow truck driver to discuss.

Well made — but prefer a larger sign.

You can drill a couple more holes on the long ends if you need to wrap it around a tree like we did. No one has blocked the drive since we put it up, but i’m sure some fool will come home drunk go “oh parking space” and insist on having their car towed sooner or later. It really takes forever to get hold of the cops and forever+ for a truck to come. There are just a lot of cars and people.

People often hang over into the driveway. I’m hoping this will be a way of alerting drivers it’s not ok.

We needed to post a sign because for some strange reason, lots of neighbors decided its ok to park in front of our driveway. I found this on amazon and it helps. Its made of metal with pre-existing holes top and bottom. I simply used cable ties to fasten. At night it has a reflective painting to help others when they “can’t see the sign”.

Was delighted by this purchase. The quality of the sign was impressive and the workmanship was impeccable. I especially liked the reflective quality that you would normally find in street signs. The sign is bright, clear and easily read and it was a cinch to attach to the gate. There no attachment cables included but some plastic zip ties quickly did the job. I haven’t seen anyone blocking the driveway since i put up the sign, which means that it’s working. Realistically, i don’t expect 100% compliance but if it stops a few more drivers from parking in front of my driveway then it’s worth it. I definitely recommend this sign.

Great sign bought it for my general foreman for our new yard, great quality and doesnt bend really thick it will last, not the cheap plastic signs you would buy from home depot.

People are no longer parking in front of my driveway. Easy to put up and easy for drivers to see.

Quality is as good as it sound.

People are actually taking us seriously no lol.

It works, delivered in good condition.

The indicators are quite high quality ‘road sign’ aluminum. They are reflective and effortlessly mountable. Couldn’t question for anything improved.

Excellent compact dimensions, is holding up perfectly to many weather conditions disorders, no paint fading, and is conveniently recognizable for motorists. It does the trick and we have experienced far much less folks park in front of our driveway.

Only concern still left, can the idiots who park in my driveway actually read through?.

The sign is just as described. It is very seen and eye catching. It is very well built and serve the purpose. Also, it was created in america.

Extremely sturdy very well produced effortless to read through sign.

Really strong and color is holding steady. It is just a vinyl sticker on steel backing but does the occupation. Loses a star simply because it was a little misaligned.

    We live off a busy street and constantly have people blocking our driveway. We’ve dealt/lived with this for eight years and have finally had enough. The sign is well made, and actually cute. It’s a decent size without looking tacky. Nobody has blocked our driveway.

    1. Got this because the casino down the street has mess up parking. Their customers kept parking in front of my drive way because i have a 3 foot high gate. Well this sign didn’t help much because they keep parking but my repeated calls to the casino must have worked because no ones blocked me in for a month or so. Anyway this is good quality sign.

    1. I like it but people still park there. So i’m guessing it it’s a little to small for people to notice.
