Does This Ever Happen to You?

Does This Ever Happen to You?

You know… you’re just traveling down the sidewalk and then boom! You are stopped dead in your tracks! Now what?? Even WITHOUT the hitch on this truck, you ain’t getting past there with a wheelchair, stroller, walker, etc. If you have a service dog by your side, this is just needless confusion for the dog trying to do its job! Or if you are someone who makes their way through this world using a cane – for vision impairment OR for stability – this is such a awkward and difficult sitution! Don’t we wish that people would give some thought before parking this way? After all, we ALL have places we need to be!

This image is that of a truck parked with its rear part over a sidewalk and the truck has a hitch on the back of the back bumper. There is a little cartoon at the corner of a male sitting in a wheelchair and the words "I'm out". Below the photo are this words: Public Service Announcement: If you drive a truck, especially one with a trailer hitch, please remember to be considerate of those who need to use sidewalks. I ask you to consider not backing up all the way to the sidewalk. I know it's probably difficult to remember this, but remember it's more difficult for others who now don't have an accessible pathway. Thanks!
