Hätte ich mir doch eine andere Verletzung als einen Schienbeinbruchs ausgesucht!


If I just had picked another injury than a broken leg!


Designer Handicap Parking Place

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011


For me the opinion has manifested that the planners of disabled parking places are taking stronger pills than me which would be an achievement in itself.

A big retailer for consumer electronics with the orange planet in Frankfurt has a more than mentionable disabled parking place in its underground parking lot.

You follow the quite good signage and go around in circles into the deep to the lowermost parking level which reminded me of the novel “Journey to the center of the earth” by Jules Verne.

You don’t need to worry about a possible evacuation of your wheelchair because you are the only human being down there, and the ramp to the saving lift can’t be climbed anyway by most of the wheelers due to its steepness. To drive up the car ramp of course wouldn’t be difficult for any Paralympics participant.

Next time I will stock up with enough water and food, just in case.

Although it is quite right that wheelers hardly reach 150 cm sitting, this has little relation to the height of the cars that we drive.

Porsche, Ferrari and Maserati cabriolets are rather uncommon hand throttle cars for wheelchair users unless you are not patient of the employer’s accident insurance.

Although you have a complete parking level available to park your car, there is only one labelled disabled parking place with a partial ceiling height of only approx. 1,60 m.

The attendance of the underground parking lot is quite charming due to the ambiance. However you should refrain from it if you would like to enter the store as wheeler by yourself.

The disabled symbol is very creditable and radiates certain cheerfulness with its design.
