    I was recently in public and have difficulty using the accessible restroom. The inside was so small, and I could only wheel my scooter in and out. There was no room to transfer to the toilet or turn around.

    I think that people who build accessible stalls for public bathrooms should use a wheelchair in the stall and use the restroom to make sure it actually works.

    Do you agree or disagree? Have you had issues with accessible restrooms?

    I have had problems with many “accessible” bathroom. Even in doctor’s offices. The ADA law has lots of loopholes but at least the US has one.

      Yes! Everyone’s perception of being ADA compliant is different. I wish it was uniform everywhere.
