That was my thought, too. Good question. I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if there were some connection to lobbying/contributions. In fact, I’d be shocked if that wasn’t the real reason behind this regulation.
That's most likely part of it.
Still, the source of all this garbage is the great Statist, Bush 41 and his kindler, gentler nation. He lovingly proposed the ADA. The ADA has been nothing but a windfall for lawyers.
99.9% of all non-military government spending is absolute waste.
Well, there are a lot of companies.
But, the interesting part is that this requires A RAMP to go in on, A LIFT to remove persons in a wheelchair, AND a lift for persons NOT in a wheelchair.
Then we have the ENORMOUSLY HUGE FAT PERSON lift (in case one of them ever makes it out of the house).
Eventually, the motorized scooter (like the grocery stores have) for people who are just fat and lazy.
My plan is to use the large LIFT to drop in a jet ski. After all, it would be 'unfair' if ONLY handicapped people were allowed use of these government mandated devices.
