But restrooms are not the only disability accommodation abused by fully able people. This is a picture from last night of the ramp access to the Hippodrome Theater. It says do not block, but many do, using the bars as a bicycle rails. I'm actually surprised that there was only one, usually they're multiple bikes tied to both sides of the ramp. And it's not even the patrons of the theater that do it. Using the area as free parking they most often hop over to Boca Fiesta hipster restaurant on the other side.
Finally, there's disability parking. If you park there without a proper tag, you get a ticket, end of story. But a private towing company that my apartment complex has hired to ensure that only residents park on the premises routinely uses those spots at night for their trucks. After I voiced my observations that they shouldn't park there regardless, I heard them say: "Are you using it right now? It's 2:30 am". I don't care what time it is. And that's kind of not the point. Anybody would've been ticketed in that spot. And, oh irony, they parked there while they were looking for cars that were there without a permit that they could tow away. I think it's a matter of consideration, kindness and common sense. Those things are for my necessity, not your comfort. And since we're on the topic of restrooms. Please remember that it may take longer for people with some disabilities to use a restroom and knocking and rushing is probably not helpful. Also some conditions may require them them to use a bathroom more urgently and suddenly than most people.
