MYTHS & FACTS ABOUT THE ADA #2

MYTH:

The government thinks everything is readily achievable.

FACT:

Not true.  Often it may not be readily achievable to remove a barrier — especially in older structures.  Let’s say a small business is located above ground.  Installing an elevator would not, most likely, be readily achievable — and there may not be enough room to build a ramp — or the business may not be profitable enough to build a ramp.  In these circumstances, the ADA would allow a business to simply provide curbside service to persons with disabilities.
