In order to have an accessible site where parking is provided, people must be able to get to the site first. This means accessible parking is a necessity. This is a common part of the accessibility codes that most design professionals and building inspectors will have to deal with in their everyday work. Parking is easy to make accessible, but also easy to get wrong. This course will point out why this should be a top priority and how to avoid the pitfalls.
