Accessibility Quote of the Month

You know the real-life accessibility, right? I’m not talking about web accessibility, I’m talking about parking spots for people with disabilities and ramps for wheelchairs, which the most of the major cities around the world provide. It’s however not very rare that some rednecks take away designated parking spot or leave a car in front of the ramp. Assholes…

Few weeks ago, I walked around the down-town and spotted a terrific traffic sign:

traffic sign for reserved parking spot

It’s the usual set of signs–especially this threat that the car will be removed if inappropriately parked (i.e. the owner is not the one with disability or handicapped). But, what’s pretty unusual (at least to me) is the yellow board which says:

“If you took away my spot, will you also take away my handicap?”
