Wheelchair Ramp Reopening

On November 25th 2012 a stone from the facade of my usual post office branch in Frankfurt hit a pedestrian on the back.

Thereupon a scaffold was put up extremely creative as protection against falling stones.

A local newspaper from Frankfurt reported this incident on December 9th 2012 with the headline:

Little stone, big trouble

for reference click here

I got the tip from a friend to have a closer look at the protective roofing.

The scaffold was put up so clever probably only to protect us wheelchair users so that the ramp next to the stairs to the entrance of the post office is not accessible with wheels since 4 weeks.

Which wheeler wants to go the post office before Christmas anyway???

I have already written a blogpost about this ramp some time ago see older blogpost.

Yesterday I made a little excursion to this post office, of course only to purchase the new 58 cent stamps. ;-)

In front of the building I had a heated dispute with a pedestrian, if his car blocked only one or two disabled parking places. I could not get out of my car, it was probably better that way.

From an unverified source I learnt that a report due to parking violation in front of a post office yesterday would be initiated against this disabled parking place occupier.

Well then, to my surprise I noticed that the ramp was accessible for wheelers without problems. Where was the coup of the fools at work?

From a post employee I learnt that the ramp was “reopened” a couple of hours before after four weeks.

When I was sitting in my car again I saw that a pedestrian apparently bumped his head at the upper scaffold bar when he was walking down the ramp with wife and stroller.

I don’t know how high the crossbar is, I fitted through below ;-)

I already expect the next article in the local newspaper.
