Disabled parking

 

The American Disabilities Act (ADA) requires that a route into a business must be made accessible and usable to people with disabilities. A route includes not only the sidewalk but also the disabled parking spaces, pathways from parking to any sidewalk and pathway to the business entrance.


Accumulations of snow and or ice might make it impossible for someone in a wheelchair or using a walker to get through the snow and into the business. Snow and ice must be completely cleared from parking spaces, immediately surrounding areas, and all walking aisles. Curb ramps must also be cleared, and snow can never be piled up in handicapped parking spaces.
