How Handicap Parking Should be Handled. This Place Has It Right
Not for myself, personally, but there are a few people I know that rely on having an available handicap parking spot open when they go shopping. Most businesses have them open right at the front of the business for quick access to the door. Unfortunately, there are those who park there when they're not handicapped. I found a business in Yakima that helps eliminate that sin.
The idea is not have the handicap ramp directly in front of the front door. It's still close, but not the closest. I like this idea.
Now, naturally, they shouldn't have to do this as people who aren't handicapped shouldn't park illegally, but still it might help reduce that issue.
