ADA Ramps Supports the Rights of the Handicapped

ADA ramps provide safe and accessible environments, where no handicapped person is segregated from mainstream society or caused any harm. With the help of progressive research, new technology and forward thinking, cities and towns can accommodate now handicapped individuals leading busy, full lives, simply by installing ADA ramps.

History shows the civil rights and women’s rights movements have led to mass efforts toward supporting the rights of our diverse population. Certain legislation such as the Americans with Disabilities Act has solidified the public support for new services. ADA ramps are just one example of a progressive service introduced in our communities. Before these changes, disabled people were unable to walk or travel on streets where a wheelchair had no ramps, and visually impaired had to largely depend on their remaining senses and the kindness of strangers, around vehicular traffic.

Before the implementation of ADA ramps, sidewalks or pedestrian ways were higher than the adjacent roadway. This discrepancy acted as an unsafe drop for wheelchairs to travel on, so curb ramps were added to the end of the sidewalk. However, this was not enough. For the visually impaired, a curb ramp created a different problem. They could not detect where the sidewalk ended and the street began so it was easy for them to walk into traffic. This serious concern called for a quick solution and that is when ADA ramps entered the picture and provided the confidence for handicapped people to travel safely in our streets.
