Extreme Accessibility

Brace yourself for this startling series of jaw-dropping Accessible Don'ts. Quick tip: They will be much funnier if you can ignore the larger implications that real people actually planned and executed these travesties of accessibility.

We Don't Recommend the Scenic Route

Oh, so many questions. For example…why? Wouldn't it have made more sense for the bridge to just be straight? And let's pretend they nixed that crazy little detour for a more direct route. Are we actually calling that new path safe?? Final note: I really want to see the Japanese wheelchair that can successfully corner this track.

C'mon, there's a ramp. What could go wrong?

What architectural genius came up with this one? Good thing for my trusty laterally compressing wheelchair.

While I can understand the confusion, no, this is not supposed to be a ride at Six Flags. But, apparently, precipitous descents are not extreme enough. No, any wheelchair user surviving this plunge receives the added bonus of being clotheslined by a handrail at the bottom.

Fail, Just Fail!

Yet another exciting scenario for the wheelchair jet-pack.

Remind Me, Which Part is Accessible? Oh, Right, the Sign.

Clearly this city has a drastically different definition for accessibility.

After the rest of these miserable excuses for access, can we muster an A for effort in making this beach wheelchair friendly?

Now that you've enjoyed this waltz off accessibility cliff, tell us…which one make you shake your head the most?
