(2) Open parking lots, alleys, and access thereto shall be illuminated as set forth below. For purposes of this paragraph, alley is defined as a narrow vehicular thoroughfare up to twenty-five (25) feet in width upon which service entrances or buildings abut and not generally used as a thoroughfare for general traffic; provided, however, alleys shall not include public rights-of-way.
(b) Groups A (Assembly), D (Day Care) and E (Educational) occupancies:
(1) Open parking lots and access thereto shall be provided with a maintained minimum of 1 foot-candle on the parking surface from dusk until dawn; provided, however, the lighting level may be reduced by fifty (50) percent on non-business days and commencing thirty (30) minutes after the termination of business on each operating day. The uniformity ratio shall not exceed a twelve to one ratio (12:1) maximum to minimum foot-candles.
