AID.org Launches ADA Parking Lot Compliance in an Educational Three Step Process

AID.org Foundation's Video Promotes Simple 3-Point ADA Self-Inspection

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - July 06, 2016) - Americans with Disabilities Act has been in effect for 26 years, and yet thousands of businesses choose not to comply. AID.org Foundation is dedicated to 100% compliance across the country. In an effort to help businesses get started with ADA compliance in their parking lots, AID.org produced an educational social media video.

A spokesperson for AID.org says, "We have to start somewhere. Since parking lots are the first place a person enters a business, they are a good place to start looking over the 2010 ADA compliance checklist."

The video outlines the 3-point inspection AID.org surveyors use as one of the steps to determine if the business will voluntarily come into ADA compliance or if an enforcement action, or lawsuit will be necessary in order to prevent the law from being continued to be broken. The mission for Advocates for Individuals with Disabilities is not to file lawsuits, but to bring about total ADA compliance by whatever methods are necessary which is why the educational efforts are so critical.

AID.org says, "We can lead a horse to water, but it is up to them to drink. That is how we feel about businesses; we can provide information and educational materials, but unless they learn the law and comply, change will never be made."

AID.org encourages the public to share this video and help fight discrimination and allow equal access to all.

AID.org wants to help others. Those with disabilities can make their requests online at www.aid.org.
