Japan eliminates a problem for people in wheelchairs...with an ingenious idea!
February 23, 2016
The difficulty of moving yourself in a wheelchair cannot be even remotely imagined by a person who is able to walk! Unfortunately, architectural barriers are a major problem in many cities around the world and are in no uncertain terms a sign of complete disregard for the rights of the disabled.
In Japan, not only has the attention paid to this problem been exemplary, but a very clever solution has been found to make escalators accessible to disabled people in wheelchairs who depend on them as their principal means of locomotion. Now they have the possibility to move around more easily! Thank you, Japan! :)
