    How many handicap parking spots must a university have in a parking lot?

    I was just wondering if anyone know where I could find this information. I just got a ticket because there was no parking avaiable not handicap nor regular so I parked right beside the handicap spot.

    I called up and bitched and now i don't have to pay $15 dollars, the money isn't what bothers me what bothers me is there are only 3 handicap spots in the whole parking lot and yet there is like 10 for service vechiles only and some for professors only.

    The lady was like, we hve more than enough! I was like really? 3 is more than enough? When I can't ever find a parking spot obviously you don't have enough or I wouldn't have this issue.

    So is there a certain number on how many handicap parking spots there must be in a lot to pass with ADA?


    Thanks!

    I think there is something that states for every X amount of regular parking spaces, you need Y amount of handicapped parking spaces. Unfortunately I do not know what X and Y would translate to. Hopefully someone here will.

      It's a 1:25 ratio. Scroll down to the chart as it factors in van accessible too.

          Americans with Disabilities Act & Architectural Barriers Act Accessibility Guidelines

          Americans with Disabilities Act and Architectural Barriers Act Accessibility Guidelines, July 23, 2004 edition by the United States Access Board is a standard many cities and municipalities follow. See page 39 of 310.

          Or go to the web site and download a copy. It is several megabytes in size.

          Also attached is American with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines for Buildings and Facilities also referred as ADAAG by the US Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board. This is another reference manual many
          cities and municipalities use too.

          I hope this helps.

            Was it anything like this? This was today at lunch. If so, then yeap, you deserve the full fine in your area, not that ''lunch money'' fine you got.

              Who freakin' does that?? Gods, but I hope you called the cops on that idiot. I can forgive people who don't have a clue about accessibility issues, but any jackhole that has a disabled plate and still does something that self-centered is practically begging to have their car towed.

                She pulled up in front of me so I went to the side of the restaurant and got out, got my camera and she was on her way out of the sub shop. I was hoping that she was in the rest. I was going so I could be shocked as to why..? My friend had to run over and snap the pics. before she drove off. BTW, she is in the car. No time to call the police as this all took like 3 minutes.
