Clip from “Talk” by the Disability Rights Commission (UK)

Filed under: Accessibility, Disability, Health, Life, Making things accessible, Wheelchair — Kim & Sophie @ 2:11 am

I just found this video, and I think it has a very strong message!  I should make a lot of people really think.  It gives a whole new meaning to “walking (or wheeling) a mile in someone else’s shoes!

The last part really hit a nerve with me.  I can’t even count the number of times I’ve waited for a bus only for it not to be accessible.  Or if it was accessible for the driver to say it was “too full”, not stop at all, or even claim the ramp was broken!  Once I told them they could reach down and pull the ramp out by hand it would “magically” start “working” again!
