Epic Fails of the ADA
And ways to make them Wins!
#FAIL – The Rickety Ramp
Ramps should be a smooth surface, with a rise of 1″ for every 12″ of length. Hand rails should extend past the ramp and have level landing areas top and bottom.
An epic fail means “a notable, obvious, and usually public failure.” Though perhaps well intentioned, these fails can embarrass, isolate, and even endanger people with disabilities. We work to remove barriers so people with disabilities can live more independently in their own communities.
