accessing disabled toilets
How many times when we find a disabled toilet do you have getting in and out. I find it very frustrating when you are lucky to find a toilet that is serving a purpose to accommodate disabled people and you can not either get in or out. It may sound stupid to some people, but as I need a mobility scooter to get around can not open the door. Even if you can reach the access handle it is impossible to open as my scooter blocks the opening and you have to get someone to come and open the door and hold it while you enter. Equally it can be the same getting out and then you find yourself stuck inside and have to painfully manoeuvre myself in a position to gain access to the door lock and then when open struggle to get into my scooter before it shuts again. Who ever designs the accesses are obviously not disabled or taken into account how they can be accessed
