“ Disability is a matter of perception . If you can do just one thing well, you're needed by someone . ” Martina Navratilova
<ul><li>Disabled parking badges are issued to people who have a permanent and substantial physical disability which affect their walking and mobility . </li></ul>
<ul><li>The sign is either </li></ul><ul><li>on the street or in the parking lot. </li></ul>
<ul><li>The car is parked in the space for the wheelchair ramp as well, blocking the curb cut . So not only can no wheelchair user park in that space but they can't use the ramp, wherever they park. </li></ul>
This is how it should always look like. This is our car and the wheelchair belongs to my husband. Please remember : the special parking place with the ramp is important to enable disabled people to move as freely as possible and have access to different places.
Please keep a distance of 2.5 m to enable the robot to take the wheelchair out .
I do not like the language of this sign , but I can definitely understand the frustration not to be able to park the car in the special places , or access places because there are no facilities for disabled people.
<ul><li>I saw this sign in Cluj, Romania. </li></ul><ul><li>It says : “ If you took my place , take my disability as well “ . </li></ul>
Wheelchair users, please use side entrance . ( There's a small parking lot and a wheelchair ramp to the left) This is a very positive attitude.
“ Never deprive someone of hope; it might be all they have” . H . Jackson Brown Jr
<ul><li>The best thing to give to your enemy is forgiveness; to an opponent, tolerance; to a friend, your heart; to your child, a good example; to a father, deference; to your mother, conduct that will make her proud of you; to yourself, respect; to all men, charity . </li></ul><ul><li>Francis Maitland Balfour </li></ul>
The only disability in life is a bad attitude. Scott Hamilton
We, the one's who are challenged, need to be heard . To be seen not as a disability, but as a person who has, and will continue to bloom . To be seen not only as a handicap, but as a well intact human being . -- Robert M . Hensel
