ADA Handicapped parking sign


Awareness Committee for Citizens with Disabilities

Think Before You Park - The D.R.E.A.M.S. Foundation of Acadiana and the Advocacy Center of Louisiana partnered with the Mayor-President’s Awareness Committee for Citizens with Disabilities, to produce a public service announcement reminding drivers that observing handicapped parking signs is not just the law, but it is also the right thing to do.

Proximity to a building’s entrance, space for loading and unloading wheelchair equipment and weather all play a significant factor in the ability for citizens in wheelchairs to move in and out of a vehicle. For wheelchair-bound citizens and their caregivers, not being able to park in designated handicapped spaces can hinder or even make it impossible to get their destinations.
