Default ADA Complaint Concerns

Thank you so much for providing a starting point where mobility concerns can formally be addressed i.e. ADA.GOV here in the US.

I have met with resistance and invited the individual / security attendant to show me the posting of prohibited devices. That's where I proceeded with entry. Upon review of the ADA.GOV Website I feel better about entry into locations with out scrutiny.

Regards

"I've been enjoying using my Segway, model i2, for about 3 years now." Walking has been impacted by a spinal injury that has affected my walking, and it has changed everything. Everyday tasks such as shopping and parking are easier. Some barriers persist, but showing courtesy goes a long way. People may be initially intrigued, but a good impression matters greatly.- Greg Congratulations to Greg.

Your experience demonstrates the importance of knowing our rights under ADA.GOV. When faced with resistance, standing firm and respectfully referencing the law can make a difference. "Have you encountered similarly conditioned situations and found it helpful to educate others about accessibility rights?"
