Disabled Community Benefits from Kiwanis Club Pride of Barbados Paint Job

On Sunday 20th September 2015 Kiwanis Club Pride of Barbados repainted the designated parking spaces for disabled at Sheraton Mall Car Park which clearly defines where fully enabled folk should NOT be parking.

In partnership with the Barbados Council for the Disabled the project is geared towards standardizing Disabled Parking Bays to meet International requirements.

The Council identified a number of facilities that have either acquired a Fully Accessible Barbados (FAB) Accreditation, or who have demonstrated their consideration by providing Disabled Parking Bays.

The abuse of Parking Spaces assigned to disabled Barbadians has been a common occurrence so much so the government has been ratifying the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and it will soon be a requirement to adhere to the international agreement for the provision of Disabled Bays as well as correct graded curb cuts.
