*** Updated Standard Parking Block***
My good friend, Phaenoh, added the third tile, and made the whole thing step-over-able. She also moved the mesh back to center of the tile because the step over animation didn't work with it moved. Then verified it against all the maxis cars and made sure it worked well with them. Please, if you re-download make sure to give extra thanks Phaenoh for her hard work!
I created the Parking Lot Supplemental Pack to compliment King13p’s Parking Lot Packs that I used to create a grocery store parking lot. This supplemental pack includes a Standard Parking Block, Parking Lot Signage, and a Speed Bump. I have all expansions and stuff packs, but I tried to narrow down the exact expansions from which each of the clones I used came from. Take a look, try them out, and feel free to leave me suggestions and feedback.
The Standard Parking Block is a two-tiled object that covers three tiles. It sits just a bit away from the back of the tiles, just enough to leave room for a sign to fit. Also, I left the third footprint off in order to allow Sims to cross over the parking block so that when it is placed near a sidewalk they have an option to cross over it instead of walking around it completely. This item can be found under Decorative – Sculptures and costs 25 simoleons per block. This item was cloned from Morphic to the Maxx and requires the Seasons expansion.
The Parking Lot Signage package contains six great parking lot signs – reserved handicapped parking, ten minute parking, customer parking only, one hour parking, no parking, and a speed bump sign. This item can be found under Decorative – Miscellaneous and costs 25 simoleons per sign.
These signs fit neatly with the Standard Parking Block. You will need to use the moveobjects on cheat in order to place them on the same block as the Parking Block in order to get the effect shown in my photo above. Look for more parking lot signage recolor packs to follow.
***The default sign is the handicapped sign. If you delete any of the signs, don’t delete the handicapped sign or you will delete the entire Parking Lot Signage package. I am certain that the sign needs the Pets Expansion as it was cloned from a pet sign.
The Speed Bump comes in two colors, natural Maxis road tarmac color (which is a bit hard to see on my main photo) and a yellow caution color. Place these at the entrance to your parking lots along with a speed bump sign! This item can be found under Decorative – Miscellaneous and costs 10 simoleons per speed bump. Cloned from Bowl of Fruit and should be base game compatible (please let me know if you find out differently, I couldn't locate my base game disk to test it out)

Thanks to the makers of SimPE

Feel free to use these in your MTS2 uploaded lots, recolor at will, and please link back here for mesh if your posting a recolor pack. If you want to edit the mesh, please do so but please give credit to the original mesh when you share.
