Last week Shiva suggested in the comments of the post on recreational access that businesses be closed until they provide disability access and that ADA noncompliance should be considered criminal rather than civil law. So what do you think?
I put up a poll on the right margin, and you can put additional commets below. Here I mean access that keeps people from entering, conducting their business, participating in an event, or receiving the same service as other patrons. Of course many businesses are not completely accessible and don't comply with all parts of the ADA building codes, or we'd be closing down everything.
Beyond that, what should be the tolerance level and penalty? Lack of restroom access (narrow hallways, tight turns that prohibit wheelchair use)? Lack of room between racks and shelves when there is some maneuverability through main aisles? Parking the company's own trucks in the access aisle or disability parking (as I've seen at two businesses)? Lack of one disability height counter or portion of a counter in a newly constructed business?
NOTE: ADA does not force small business owners to make changes that would place an undue burden on the business owner. But many changes are not expensive.
