I found this old video — Accessibility* – An Attainable Goal, from the Montgomery County Department of Transportation and uploaded it.** It’s about the challenges of traveling by wheelchair in an environment that just doesn’t care. The Americans with Disabilities Act addresses this to some extent on new construction, but there is so much work to do. While this is from the 1990s, the general problems remain, although hopefully not as widespread as they once were.
- * Accessibility for the physically disabled, not access to jobs or other destinations, the way the term is normally used on this blog.
- ** I assume it’s public domain.
