And remember there can be young, healthy-looking drivers who are suffering a disability that might not be readily apparent to the casual observer. There's a disabled comedian I follow on Twitter who makes that point here

I agree the spaces should exist.
but they're only reason their reserve is because business owners are too cheap to make all the spaces accessible.
That's said they should not be reserved

Are you advocating that all spaces be closest to the entrance? I'd agree but implementation may violate the laws of physics.

The idea is also that the CLOSEST spots are available to make it as easy as possible..
Otherwise we'd have business owners that say, "Ya all my spots are accessible" but the
closest available spots are always at the back of the lot..

It's not that the space is accessible, say, has space next to it for a ramp.
It's that the space is the closest possible to the door.  Most disabled people aren't in wheelchairs, but they *do* have restrictions on how far they can comfortably walk.  The reason they're reserved is that it's impossible for all the spaces in the lot to be equidistant from the entrance.

The point is that you should also be talking about location. There is a specific reason the accessible spots are closest to the entrance.

Great quote FTA, applicable to so many areas of life: please note that this effort is not a matter of altruism - of trying to be nice. It's a matter of justice - of doing right by those who face additional challenges because that is what we would want for ourselves if we were in their place.

My sister in law parks in those spaces all the time. She seems to think needing a walker and having a little wheelchair symbol on her license plate gives her special privileges.
 
2020-06-26 8:12:50 AM  
Where I'm at there is almost a fight for handicapped spaces. Whole parking lot is empty but the handicapped spots are full every time. Many of these people are morbidly obese, and I mean morbidly. And there are a few that are obviously entitled to the space.

Then we have the biggest users of the spaces, people that borrowed Aunt Janes car so they can park in front of the store.

I'm one of those people that always parks away from others. So I always walk past the people jockeying for close spots and the people racing to get a handicapped spot. It's a zoo. The only downside to parking well away from the others is that you have to walk through the demolition zone to get into the store.

So if you ever see a car parked well away from every other car in the lot and that car is sitting perfectly in the space between the lines, wave hi, it's me. I might not respond right away since I'll be playing frogger through the handicapped parking area.
