I posted someone else’s story, about the not-quite-accessible status of places she goes. I’d said that I agree, that while I’m able to walk when needed, but achieving the minimum level of accessibility to be “certified”, and get the tax-break, without making it truly accessible, is wrong.
With how my disability is, I’m able to look upon my scooter as a car. I don’t go into stores, usually because I can’t. I bring a walker with me. You see it on the back.
I follow all traffic rules, stopping at stop signs and the like, because “they” require me to park it like a car when I get to some stores.
Here’s an example. This is an “accessible” store. This is its front entrance. My scooter is roughly 8 feet long. The door to the wall is roughly 3.5 feet, with a 90 degree turn, in a space roughly 3 feet wide.
This isn’t the only one, not even close, which why I’m not going to say their name. They know that because they’re only a tenant, that they’re unable to do too much, but they try really damn hard.
