  1. Just use the ramp made by the curb cut to tilt your wheelchair on two wheels like Joie Chitwood and use the rain gutter. See? No problem.

  2. They have special parking spaces, even give them a special license plate – so, what are they gonna do in return? Gotta earn that handicapped parking spot, right? Yee hawwwwwwwwww!

  3. I wonder if this is to help blind people walking around–make it easier for them to know they are leaving the lower parking lot (or entering it) without tripping over a curb.

    Or if this is a hotel, that is nice so I can wheel my luggage without fighting a curb. Granted, I still have to haul it up/down the stairs, but the curb is gone.

  4. Not useful for wheel chairs, but very useful for people with difficulty walking. See, the stairs have rails which makes them easier to climb, but a curb doesn’t and can be very difficult to navigate.
    My old dad would find this design very helpful for this reason.

    • I was thinking the same thing. Curbs can be very difficult for those who have trouble walking.
