Help Educate Others About Handicap Parking Basics

Did you know that 75% of able-bodied individuals said if a car parked too close to them, they’d simply climb through a window or opposite door to get in? Sounds like an obvious solution, but not for a wheelchair user! BraunAbility’s Save My Spot campaign is on a mission to educate the public about why it’s so important to leave space for a wheelchair ramp, even if you’re legally allowed to park in a handicap space. Read below to see how you can support the campaign and take action.
