Legislation in the USA has made huge differences in the lives of persons with disabilities in America, and many other countries have passed legislation as well. Saudi Arabia has actually spent quite a bit of money on improving the plight of the disabled within the country. I don’t believe, however, that businesses or buildings are legally required to accommodate wheelchair bound persons. Accommodations for wheelchairs definitely seem like an afterthought in many places. This ramp in the front of a small supermarket actually seems like it was added more for the shopping carts, if anything. Navigating that curve on the way down with no safety railing at all would be quite dangerous, in my opinion. I’ve seen the carry-out guys having lots of fun riding on the shopping carts down this ramp, but I shudder every time they make that curve.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby and teenage son. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE, which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
