Description

My friend is a disabled vet. He goes to the V.A. Community center, on Front st. in West Haven, for group's everyday. The problem is, he has to ride his mobile wheelchair in the street from Davenport & Vernon st. to the center everyday because of the snow mound's every were, the city buses can't lower there wheelchair ramp any where along the street. There's no room. not only that, the curb ramp's are not shoveled. So the disabled have to stay home or risk there lives riding down snow and ice'd street's, this is unexceptable. The American's with Disabilitie's Act Prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in Employment, Transportation, Public Accommodation etc. The city is accommodating car's and the walking by plowing, but they made know accommodations for the disabled. Let's get with it New Haven, live's are at stake here.
