Channel 33 Youngstown was asking their viewers “What is ADA Parking?” OK, not really but it kind of seemed that way?
When there is a breaking news story though news agencies have to get there as fast as possible even it means parking in the access zone between 2 ADA Parking Spaces. Which is what channel 33 Youngstown WXTV News did, and parked in the hash marks outside the OH WOW Childrens Learning Center(on opening day) in Youngstown, Ohio.
Andrew added “This is not the first time that this local news crew has blocked wheelchair access!”. While Christina said “So, apparently, it is more important for them to cover an opening event than it is for wheelchair users to attend them!!”
Basically, they are notorious for parking in the access zone or other no parking places, but have never learned a lesson or been caught by the law?
Maybe it is time for readers to use WYTV’s Contact Us page and educate them on the importance of these access zones to the disabled community. Who knows WYTV 33 News may realize the error of their way, and start parking in real spaces when they are out on location.
Might even do a segment on the importance of not violating handicap parking, who knows? Thanks for sharing this Andrew and Christina!
