What’s Wrong Wednesday: Access Aisle Violations
I was at Target recently and saw two car the parked in the accessible parking access aisles.
People often use access aisles as parking spaces when they were not supposed to making it more difficult when someone uses a wheelchair, walker or scooter and need to use the access aisles to get into and out of their vehicles. The accessible parking access aisle is also part of the driver’s accessible “path of travel” to the building or facility served by the parking area; block the access aisle illegally with your vehicle, and you prevent the driver with a disability from living their life to the fullest.
(Image description: In picture number one there is a car that is parked in the access parking space and the access aisle next to the access aisle. In picture number two, there is a minivan that is parked in the access aisle between two accessible parking spaces that are occupied by two vehicles.)
