I am in a hurry and can't fool around with the array command....

 

I want to make parking strips on the outside of a curve... I cannot remember how to do this, its been 5 years since...

I always do parking space markings by making a block of the pavement marking and then using the MEASURE command and using the pavement marking block at the required spacing.

If you're in Civil 3D 2012 take 1 min and mess around with the new "Path" option on array. If you are doing parking along a curve this is pretty cool. After you layout the parking, mess with the curve and watch the lines update.
