DAC Working with Business Owners to Provide Access

c-lC&L Auto Repair in Athol

No, they are not fully ADA compliant but now someone in a wheelchair can get inside C&L Auto Repair. Stan, the owner, noticed that one of his customers used a wheelchair and couldn’t get through the door to get to the service desk and waiting room.   So he grabbed a couple of bags of Quickcrete and viola! Instant concrete ramp. Sometimes all it takes is something cheap and easy to make a business accessible.

Now people who use wheelchairs can get in the door and sit in their waiting room just like everyone else. Thanks Stan! It’s important that a business owner wants to serve customers with a disability!

maverickMaverik Gas Station

When the Maverik gas station in Hayden Idaho opened they had a sign that stated that you just had to call a phone number and they would come right out and pump the gas. DAC posted the news on social media that there was an accessible gas station in Hayden and the response was huge.

Since then, people who have a disability have gone to Maverik Gas Station and the feedback is that the employees are friendly and happy to run out and pump gas.
