When the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) was passed in 1990, it created a mandate to make public facilities accessible for the physically challenged. As of March 15, 2012, the laws require all public-access facilities to observe stricter guidelines and compliance requiring ADA Standards for Accessible Design. This applies to all new construction and alterations for any venue where goods & services are made available to the public.
In the 20 years or so since the first ADA law was passed, we’ve seen much more awareness about Americans with disabilities. Today, nearly every city has access to transportation to go to see the doctor, to go to the movies, go to a restaurant or even something as simple as checking into a hotel. The laws have really given people with disabilities the chance to do the same things as everyone else does. A not-so-small role in that has been the implementation of ADA signage. As the awareness about ADA has grown, so too has the need—and usage—of compliant ADA signage.
